Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy - Tennyson Centre - Mount Roskill IntermediateOccupational Therapists (OTs) promote function, participation, independence and achievement of educational goals, including:

  • Student and work skills – self-management, self-organisation, handwriting, work and technology management;
  • Activities of daily living skills – eating, dressing and using community facilities;
  • Play, social and recreational skills – learning to use play and learning resources; accessing the playground and participating in activities with others.

OT’s contribute to students’ individual educational programme by:

  • Assessing students’ development and the functional skills needed for school and everyday life;
  • Analysing activities and modifying them for students, planning and designing curriculum adjustments together with the team;
  • Adapting equipment and the environment to help students participate as independently as possible in the school programme;
  • Advising on the use of technology and the best means of accessing devices for independence in the areas of communication, mobility and other computer technologies;
  • Preventing or reducing the risk of further disability through specialist techniques such as advising on correct positioning during activities;
  • Enhancing self-esteem by providing students with achievable and motivating tasks.
