Facilitating Child Development

For children aged 1.5 to 17 years old

Developed with the aim of helping children prevent, reduce or overcome the effects of disabilities, our occupational therapy programmes aim to help children develop and maintain their capacities to perform essential everyday tasks. Our occupational therapists work with them to improve capabilities such as:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Gross motor skills
  • Handwriting
  • Sensory processing
