For Teachers

Teachers and child-care educators are a valuable part of a child’s team, often having insight on difficulties a student may be having accessing the curriculum that may not otherwise be evident. To enable the child to be best assisted, Occupational Therapy Whitsunday appreciates input from all members of their team. For this reason, as part of an occupational therapy intervention a child’s teacher/educator may be requested to provide information on strengths and challenges in the school/kindy/day-care environment.

If you have any concerns regarding a child’s development or ability to access the curriculum that may benefit from occupational therapy intervention please do not hesitate to discuss this with the child’s parents or guardian. Parents are able to self-refer to Occupational Therapy Whitsunday and do not need a medical referral.
