Ongoing therapy varies according to the individual child and family. Some children attend clinic therapy sessions for long term periods, for others, a smaller block of sessions is sufficient. For others, especially those living out of town, home programmes can be provided. The therapy is tailored to the individual child and works off the basis of the occupational therapy assessment.

Therapy may include working on foundation skills such as balance, bilateral coordination, motor planning and sequencing, as well as fine-motor coordination, following a sensory integrative based approach. Therapy may also include working on functional skills as appropriate to the child’s needs, such as tying shoelaces, catching, skipping and handwriting.
