Family Focus OT aims to provide a family focused approach to supporting children and teenagers who are having difficulty doing their everyday activities such as playing, learning and self-care.
What do Occupational Therapists do?
Occupational Therapists (OTs) are primarily interested in everyday activities (occupations) and believe that being engaged in meaningful activity promotes health and wellbeing. Occupational therapists work with children when they are having difficulty doing their daily activities such as sleeping, eating, playing, learning, toileting and looking after themselves. Occupational therapists consider the child, the child’s family and their environment when assisting the child in learning to do these everyday activities.
Family Focus OT services
Family Focus OT is a home visiting occupational therapy service based in the Adelaide Hills.
Family Focus OT is run by Emma Beare, an occupational therapist with 20 years experience working with children and young people with a wide range of disabilities, developmental difficulties and/or behavioural difficulties.
Emma focuses on supporting children in their natural home/school environment and developing strategies and ideas that fit well with each child and their family. We believe each child is unique and special and that parents/family know their child best. We will work in partnership with you to develop a plan to support your child/ren that works for you and your family.
