Our Occupational Therapists know that their programs and intervention are helping our clients engage and participate in goal-directed activities to encourage functional independence. This is what motivates us every day to create engaging therapy activities to focus their learning while making Occupational Therapy fun.
The most important influence on achieving Occupational Therapy goals are the family members / caregivers who provide support outside of therapy sessions. We understand that teachable moments happen in every moment, and we will empower families to make the most of such moments by providing feedback, resources and tips to use at home.
We know our clients deserve the best treatment approach, and it is this passion that drives us to regularly update our clinical skills and participate in ongoing professional development programs. Our Occupational Therapists hold full registrations with their professional associations and keep updated with the latest research in evidence-based practice in order to offer the most effective intervention for your needs.
We spend time building rapport and understanding the uniqueness of each client, in order to deliver our client-centered holistic Occupational Therapy programs effectively. We know no two clients having the same “diagnosis” are ever the same, therefore we collaborate with the client for achievable goals of what they want to do, have to do, and need to do. Tilegne Occupational Therapy being a multidisciplinary practice can also offer a coordinated service across different professionals while being under the same therapy family.
We know that every client is a unique individual despite having the same “diagnosis.” We personalise our therapy programs according to the Person-Environment-Occupation Performance (PEOP) model. Our sessions are fun, efficient, and outcomes-driven, according to the needs of each client, taking into account their intrinsic factors and extrinsic factors to assess their occupation and performance. Our customised Occupational Therapy programs adhere to research-based practice, and therapy goals are targeted using the SMART framework.
We offer a range of occupational therapy options such as Saturday appointments, school-based, childcare, or Telehealth sessions. We also assist in understanding the range of funding options that may be available for your child. We are registered with Medicare, NDIS, and private health insurers for suitable clients.
Waiting times are stressful and clients’ learning potential could be stifled if intervention is delayed. We also believe that neuroplasticity happens at any age, and progress can be achieved with the right team, right motivation and effort and effective therapy programs. With our large team of experienced therapists, we can offer sessions with minimal wait times. Let us help you develop your potential in life.
A booking for an initial assessment will be matched to the most suitable therapist. Upon receiving your concerns and conducting initial
assessments you may receive verbal feedback or pay for a comprehensive report with findings of the assessment.
You may be asked to fill out a form to provide information regarding your prior medical history and your concerns relating to your condition. The therapist may discuss this information to assist with assessment, developing client-identified goals, and supporting future occupational therapy planning and ongoing therapy sessions.
Your first session entails information gathering to gain a holistic picture of your clients needs and occupational therapy goals. For therapy with under 18s, we recommend the first session as a consultation between only the therapist and parent/guardian for goal-setting.
These first few sessions focus on building rapport with you and assessing a range of areas using both informal and standardised assessments. This will assist in identifying your strengths and needs. We are able to provide in-person observation, where the therapist can go to schools or home to obtain more information, with your consent. If your child has been seen by other health professionals (e.g. psychologists, speech pathologists), it will be beneficial to bring the reports so that the occupational therapist can get a better understanding of your development and associated concerns. Several areas of development will be assessed, such as ADL’s, attention, behaviour, emotional regulation, social skills, mobility and transfers.
Upon completion of the assessments, your therapist will spend time analysing and making recommendations on areas of concern. If a formal assessment report is requested kindly note that it is chargeable. Depending on the assessment, your occupational Therapist will recommend therapy sessions with the frequency to be determined upon discussion. Therapy sessions can be conducted in the clinic, at home, at school or via telehealth.
At this clinic:
Our clinic has an amplitude of resources to develop your fine and gross motor skills, along with resources for regulating sensory processing needs. We provide fun and engaging therapy sessions to achieve your goals.
We also provide the option of outdoor therapy involving a sensory garden. Sensory garden creates opportunity for learning about the process of growing a plant, different smells, colours, and textures of plants. Outdoor space also focuses on enhancing gross motor skills with chances to run, jump, and move about for those who seek movement input to regulate their behaviours.
Our occupational therapists can come to you at the comfort of our clients’ homes for them to be able to be more secure and engaged in our therapy sessions. Home visits are suitable for those who have ADL-specific functional goals such as cooking, cleaning, and routine development. We also do home safety assessments to reduce risk of falls and independence in transfers and mobility.
Depending on the assessment, your speech therapist may recommend therapy sessions with the frequency to be determined upon discussion. Therapy sessions can be conducted in the clinic, at home, at school or via telehealth. Ongoing guidance and feedback will be provided to carers to work with the child outside of therapy sessions to facilitate goal achievement. Speech therapy goals are targeted in an evidence-based approach using the SMART framework (Specific, Measurable, Agreed upon, Realistic, and Time-Based).
