School and Pre-School Based Intervention
Qualia work with children in their school environment to enhance:
- creative writing
- fine motor skills
- coordination & gross motor skills
- attention & concentration
Qualia work with children in their pre-school environment to provide strategies and therapy for:
- pencil grasp;
- pre-writing skills;
- letter recognition and formation;
- fine motor skills;
- play skills;
- skills in independence (i.e. dressing);
- coordination and gross motor skills;
- organisation, attention and concentration; and
- school readiness.
Being involved in a child’s school or pre-school environment allows us to liaise with teachers and stay in touch with what they are learning at school. We find we get the best outcomes by completing sessions at school or pre-school while children are in “learning mode”.
Qualia offers occupational therapy sessions at some schools and pre-schools all across the Inner West of Sydney. Therapists currently visit schools and pre-schools in Balmain, Birchgrove, Rozelle, Five Dock, Drummoyne, Hunters Hill, Orange Grove, Annandale, Newtown and Marrickville.
Qualia also offers in-school screening at certain schools across the Inner West of Sydney. This involves completing a short, one-to-one screening assessment to determine if a child is developing appropriately or if they would benefit from occupational therapy. Brief reports outlining home and classroom recommendations are provided where appropriate to assist child development.
For further information about in-school therapy sessions or screening please contact us on 9555 9776 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
