What is Paediatric Physiotherapy?

Occupational therapy empowers children to participate in their activities of daily life, by developing their skills to overcome obstacles.

Occupational Therapists develop independence in children by providing them and their families with fun and positive activities to help them improve their cognitive, pyscho-social, motor and life skills. This is done by modifying tasks or the environment.
