Aurore’s team of occupational therapists help children reach their full potential through therapies designed to allow children develop their abilities in play, school and leisure time. Our purpose is to provide a high quality personalised friendly and informed development programme within a structured play environment where the child can learn to face the challenges of daily living and bring their abilities to the optimum potential.
Occupational Therapy plays a role in helping a child and their families adapt to the resulting physical, psychological or learning challenges such conditions can impose on everyday life. Our therapeutic systems help children improve their gross motor (balance, postural control and coordination) and fine motor skills (bilateral hand use, manipulation and dexterity), as well as self care skills such as dressing and feeding, functional classroom skills like handwriting, and overall social interactions.
Does your child experience difficulty with any of the following:
- Fine Motor/Handwriting Skills
- Functional Skills in the Classroom
- Organising and Planning their Motor Skills
- Play & Socialisation
- Sensory Integration
- Balance & Coordination
- Muscle Tone / Postural Control
- Food Aversions
- General Developmental Delays
Children can be affected in a variety of different ways by certain conditions:
- Sensory Integrative Dysfunction
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders including Asperger’s Syndrome, Neurodevelopmental Difficulties including Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay and Learning Disabilities
At Aurore we help children with various needs to improve their cognitive, physical, sensory and motor skills through a range of meaningful and purposeful activities. Progress in this area has a positive impact on their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
According to the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), in addition to dealing with someone’s physical well-being, OT practitioners address psychological, social, and environmental factors that can affect functioning in different ways. This holistic approach is what makes OT a vital part of health care for many kids.
