Therapy Services - Occupational Therapy (Community)

Occupational therapists have a broad education that equips them with skills and knowledge to work collaboratively with individuals or groups of people who have an impairment of body structure or function due to a health condition, and who experience barriers to participation. Occupational therapists believe that participation can be supported or restricted by physical, social, attitudinal and legislative environments. Therefore, occupational therapy practice may be directed to changing aspects of the environment to enhance participation.

Occupational Therapy Making Progress

Jillian Ballantyne is a dynamic Occupational Therapist and director of her private practice  with a speial interest in Sensory Processing dysfunction and how it impacts on the developmental, academic and life progress for many individuals.  Sensory difficulties cause disruption in everyday life along with developmental milestones and learning opportunities that are misunderstood and then incorrectly acted upon during play, formal learning, peer relations and personal hygiene.

People with SPD experience their world as either Hypersensitive (over reactive, sensory avoidance) or Hyposensitive (under reactive, sensory seeker). They may also present with motor skill problems. They may react with strong emotional behaviours and experience what may be described as ‘melt downs’.
