Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists (OTs) are health professionals whose core business is enabling function, despite a person’s injury, illness, or other difficulty. OTs work in a variety of settings with a diverse range of clients. OTs use relevant, meaningful activities to assist people to overcome these challenges. At FUNction First, we will endeavour to make your child’s therapy meaningful, relevant and above all fun!

Speech Pathology

Speech Pathologists (SPs) are health professionals that work with both adults and children with communication and swallowing difficulties. Speech Pathologists work in a variety of different settings including hospitals, schools, aged care homes, in the community and private practice. Speech Pathologists aim to enhance a person’s ability to communicate effectively with others.

Our Services

Screening Assessment

A screening assessment is a brief overview of your child’s strengths and difficulties. Through this process, we can determine if your child is on track with their development or may need further support in a few areas. A screening assessment usually takes approximately 30 -45 minutes to complete.

Comprehensive Assessment

A comprehensive assessment is a longer, in-depth assessment, designed to fully assess the needs of your child across many developmental areas. This type of assessment usually takes 1.5-2 hours to complete.
