OTFC Group influences the lives of the young people and families we support. We create possibilities by empowering those we help and encourage each young person to achieve their goals and dreams, making a difference every day in family’s lives.
OUR SUPERPOWERS ARE PEOPLE, PURPOSE, and PASSION
We are not only the longest standing, private paediatric occupational therapy clinic in South Australia, but we are innovators in our sector, providing world-class clinical spaces specifically designed to challenge your child in just the right way to achieve positive outcomes…. And we are bringing all of this to the Gold Coast!
Our culture has been carefully nurtured and developed to ensure we attract like-minded people to collaborate and bring to life possibilities for our clients.
We provide a rigorous and thorough assessment that incorporates ‘gold standard’ assessments. We take detailed information from parents, educators, and relevant health professionals to make informed and wholistic decisions.
We have highly developed ‘clinic based’ purpose-built treatment facilities because we believe this provides the opportunity for the most efficient and effective therapy. We are certified and specialised in Ayres Sensory Integration which requires post graduate certification and an awesome culture and team who embody the OTFC Group values of play, hope, courage, trust, passion, relationships and passion, every single day.
We certainly love what we do – we get to “hang out” and “play” with young people to improve their skills and remediate their deficits and this falls under a neurodevelopmental approach that has a strong scientific base.
Our success is based on a rigorous data-driven decision-making framework that is client-centric and it means we can continually grow our service offering to meet the needs of those who need and want a therapeutic approach that works.
WHAT ARE THE INDICATORS YOU SHOULD VISIT OTFC?
We have used the saying in the past “When the behaviour is baffling, the physical is failing and the doing needs improving.”
Key indicators in young people include:
1. Behaviour: Frustrated, angry, unwilling to try, defiant, tired, unmotivated, not being excited to do things, difficulty interacting socially with their peers
2. Coordination: Both fine and gross motor. This includes achieving motor milestones in walking (gross motor) and grasping objects (fine motor) and is often evidenced in a child’s play (their daily occupation)
3. Function: Problems performing daily activities become more obvious as children get older. Difficulty with handwriting, dressing, playing sports, using a fork and knife, maintaining attention, learning
