Why Choose Tilegne Therapy?

We Know We Are Impacting Your Child’s Life

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.

We Empower And Educate Parents / Caregivers

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.

Our Quest For Learning Never Ends

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.

Our Ability To Work With Clients With Diverse 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.

Customised Treatment Strategies For Every Client

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 Something For Busy Parents

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.

We Believe That Therapy Progress Can Be Made Anytime / Anywhere

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.
