Providing Fun and Interactive Occupational Therapy Solutions for Children

Welcome to Newcastle Paediatric Occupational Therapy.

At Newcastle Paediatric Occupational Therapy we specialise in providing high-quality occupational therapy solutions for children and their families.

Our therapist, Melanie Ward, is dedicated to providing treatments that focus on developing important motor and neurological age-appropriate skills in infants, children and adolescents up to 18 years of age.

We provide assessment and treatment in the areas of:

  • Muscle tone, joint stability and core strength
  • Motor coordination and postural stability
  • Motor learning
  • Handwriting, posture and grapho-motor skills
  • Neurodevelopmental areas
  • Sensory processing, sensory overload and resultant behavioural issues
  • Visual perception
  • Self-care skills

Early intervention is the cornerstone of success when it comes to achieving outcomes through therapy.

Our treatment strategies are individually designed to support children in dealing with or overcoming barriers that may restrict them from learning, from participating in play and lagging behind their peers in the performance of functional tasks.
