Ready Kids Occupational Therapy is a private practice based in Brisbane, Australia. It was based as a mobile therapy service, providing Occupational Therapy services in homes, schools and childcares. As we expanded, we saw a growing need for Occupational Therapists but there were limited OTs in the area and parents and schools wanted more support. We also saw a high number of parents who wanted some Occupational Therapy input for their child but had difficulty with regular cost and time commitment of therapy.
ReadyKids was created to fill this great demand for easily accessible Occupational Therapy resources for proactive parents. These resources are created by Occupational Therapists and aim to help parents develop skills and offer activity ideas so the child can participate in fun activities at home.
Whether are finding an Occupational Therapist in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, rurally, or even in the United States or United Kingdom, you can still access ReadyKids!
In order to provide quality health care to your family, our Occupational Therapists are registered with under Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and are members of Occupational Therapy Board of Australia. Our Occupational Therapists are committed to ongoing professional development to ensure we are using evidence-based practice in our sessions.
