Self care tasks include personal activities of daily living including toileting, dressing, eating and sleeping. Paediatric Occupational Therapists look at the developmental milestones of children in these range of skills and help them develop skills to increase their independence in these self care tasks.
✔️ Does your child have difficulty putting on their pants?
✔️ Does your child have difficulty sitting on the toilet?
✔️ Does your child hide when they need to do a poo?
✔️ Does your child have difficulty getting to sleep?
✔️ Does your child have difficulty eating with cutlery?
Occupational Therapists can help determine whether these are physical skills, behaviour, or medical complications impacting your child’s ability to perform these skills independently.
If your think your child has difficulty with the above areas, contact us below using the contact form.
