FUNdamentals OT can assist children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention and concentration are key components to success in school.

FUNdamentals OT can assist children with Dysgraphia

Dysgraphia can appear as difficulties in spelling, handwriting and putting ideas on paper.

Programs targeting fine motor skills and handwriting skills are key to remediating dysgraphia. An academic literacy screening may help to identify the underlying cause of your child’s difficulties.


Developmental Delays

Children with a specific diagnosis in areas of developmental delay or other diagnosed disability are able to access funding through the WA NDIS.

Therapy is also available for children who are developmentally delayed, without a diagnosis; for example, children who are late to start talking, or are presenting with delayed speech sound development (resulting in unclear speech).

For children who have difficulties with feeding: drinking, chewing and swallowing support is offered and practical strategies provided.


Strengthening the oral and written language skills of children with persistent language disorders supports their daily communication as well as their academic achievement.

Programs addressing poor articulation, stuttering, expressive and receptive language development will support your child’s communication at home, school and in the community.
