Occupational Therapy Helping Children

Director/Senior Clinician – Lisa Hughes

We’re a specialist team of Occupational Therapists who are dedicated to helping children thrive.

We help children from infants through to teenagers who are struggling with their development and day-to-day activities — whether that’s movement, play, eating, writing, focusing at school, making friends, coping with change or participating in sport and extra-curricular activities.

Our experienced team help children with a wide range of developmental challenges using our unique Puzzle Piece Methodology™ — our five-stage process ensures your child will always receive support tailored to their specific needs and goals. Our Occupational Therapists draw upon a wide variety of tools and strategies to develop a customised programme for your child’s development.

We also work closely with you (the child’s parents or carers) along with their teachers and other health professionals, to ensure we’re all working towards the same goals thanks to our Hands Together Collaboration Approach™.

And all our Occupational Therapists use our Fun First Philosophy™ to help make sure your child’s sessions with us are enjoyable and engaging. Because we find when kids are having fun, they are more likely to make real progress.

We help children work towards their developmental goals through one-on-one sessions at our Pymble and Balgowlah clinics (both of which are equipped with a purpose-built sensory gym). We also help children with in-school sessions across Sydney’s North Shore and Northern Beaches.

In the school holidays, we run a range of popular group programmes to help children develop their school readiness, handwriting, social and emotional skills.

In addition to the services that we provide for children, we also run regular parent workshops and teacher training sessions and in-services.
