Occupational therapy builds skills and smashes down barriers, connecting families, friends and the community in the ways that matter most. Whether it’s making pancakes, writing an assignment, or finally making it across those monkey bars, our skilled occupational therapists can help you achieve your goals.

What is an occupational therapist?

Occupational therapists are superheroes of participation and connection (we’re also university-trained healthcare professionals).

At Look Who’s Talking, our occupational therapists work with children and young adults in our Birkdale clinic, catering to each person’s unique strengths and needs.

Develop life skills with occupational therapy

Navigating and enjoying life requires numerous skills.

Fine and gross motor skills help you (or your child) get dressed, write clearly, or play sports. Meanwhile, social and emotional skills help build relationships and enhance quality of life. Some people face additional challenges in acquiring and using these skills. That’s where occupational therapy comes in.
