Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Ready Kids is a modern way to deliver Occupational Therapy services. It aims to equip children and parents to have the necessary tools to help develop independence so their child can become Ready Kids. As this is a new way, there may be some questions. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any additional questions, email us on info@readykids.com.au

 

Occupational Therapy aims to support individuals to do activities or ‘occupations’ they want to, need to, or are expected to do. Paediatric Occupational Therapists help support children and their families to help their develop cognitive, play and social skills, daily living skills, sensory and emotional regulation skills. 

As children learn best through play, Paediatric Occupational Therapists use this as a modality to increase motivation and engagement in activities to help them develop the fundamental skills needed for the children to be able to perform these occupations independently. 

Ready Kids is an online platform that offers Occupational Therapy resources, including videos, handouts and worksheets. Ready Kids also offers Telehealth Consults to guide parents in accessing relevant OT resources for their child.

There are three different plans for ReadyKids Membership.  

The first and second plan offer monthly and yearly access to ReadyKids platform, respectively. You will have unlimited access to our Occupational Therapy resources and activities for your child. It includes activity base and informational handouts and videos. 

The third plan offers the same as the yearly plan with an additional of 4 one-hour sessions with a registered Occupational Therapist.

Our Occupational Therapists registered under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). During the online consult, you can discuss your concerns about your child and our Occupational Therapists can provide specific recommendations based on your goals and your child’s abilities.

Yes. If you are self or plan-managed NDIS, you can use your NDIS funding to pay for Ready Kids telehealth consult and our online platform (under Capacity Building). We currently cannot see Agency-Managed NDIS clients.

Ready Kids does not currently offer mobile therapy services. We saw that there was a high demand for Occupational Therapists and found a new, modern way to deliver services so we could help more children and their family. That is how Ready Kids was created.

All our resources are categorised into different Skill Areas with clear descriptions how that activity can help your child. However, if you are having trouble knowing where to start, you can Book in a Consultation with our Occupational Therapists and they can suggest resources for you. 

Occupational Therapists work with individuals with or without disabilities. We understand that each child is different, therefore in addition to our ready-made resources, we also tailor make resources for your child. Talk to your Occupational Therapist about your child’s needs or tell us Suggested Resources you would like us to make (if it’s not there already).

All our plans include a 7-day free trial. If you do not enjoy Ready Kids, you can cancel your plan within the first 7 days. No questions asked. However, if you do enjoy Ready Kids, there is a monthly cost. When you put your credit card details there, it means you can continue to enjoy Ready Kids continuously, even after the 7 initial days.

Ready Kids has over 100 resources available and will continue adding more. If you are having  trouble finding relevant resources for  your child, you can talk to your Occupational Therapist and they can make specific resources for your child. Alternatively,  when you are signed in, you can Suggest Resources and your Occupational Therapist will make these resources for you.

Ready Kids Occupational Therapy is a private practice based in Brisbane, Australia. As we expanded, we saw a growing need for Occupational Therapists in homes and schools but there were limited OTs in the area and parents and schools wanted more support. We also saw parents who wanted some Occupational Therapy input for their child but had difficulty with regular cost of therapy. 

Ready Kids Membership aims to fill this gap by the use of the online bank of resources. 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.
