Occupational Therapy

Please note: While physical distancing rules are in place as per the NSW Government, we are providing AAT and OT services via Telehealth only. When our clinic reopens for in-person sessions, Telehealth will remain an option for those who prefer it.

Assistance Dogs Australia provides occupational therapy sessions in Engadine NSW, conducted by our occupational therapists Claire and Lauren. Our occupational therapists are able to provide sessions in-clinic, within schools, within the community or within the home depending on the goals of each client. Our occupational therapists are equipped to assist children and adults to participate in their daily environment in order to reach their full potential.

Our two occupational therapists are also able to provide school-based group sessions at local primary and high schools.

Additionally, our occupational therapists can provide Animal Assisted Therapy sessions with trained dogs. Our dog co-therapist team includes Labradors named Asta, Bentley, Ike and Joy.

Our occupational therapists may work towards individual goals related to:
      •  Social participation and communication skills
      •  Emotion and sensory regulation
      •  Self-care and activities of daily living
      •  Fine motor, gross motor, and coordination skills
