Paediatric Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation
Paediatric Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary team approach that offers a wide range of services, from physical and occupational therapy for a child with multiple congenital or acquired acute/chronic diseases and disorders. We help your child in achieving independence in their daily lives by developing a treatment program designed to meet your family’s goals.

These skills include self-help skills (dressing, hygiene, and self-feeding), emotional/behavioural regulation, social interaction, upper extremity & fine motor skills, etc. which are necessary to become a healthy, functional, and independent adult.
