Subiaco or commonly known as
Subi located in Western Australia, along the bustling Rokery road is a
suburb
that recognises the importance of occupational therapy for children
amongst its
population. A child’s development in early stages of life is critical
as they
are filled with unique experiences and new stimulations that determines
the
child’s physical, cognitive and social growth. There are instances
where these
processes of holistic growth are restricted or delayed in a particular
child
and that is where occupational therapy is needed in order to offer
sufficient
support for such cases.

Subiaco has established
programs of early childhood intervention through occupational therapy
which
involves a collection of interventions and supportive services offered to
children from birth to three years who have challenges in development or
are at
risk of developing them such as Down syndrome, autism, and others which
have no
clear symptoms. This, in turn, helps the child later in life to cope with
pressures and challenges that come with age.

Occupational therapy for
children is vital in helping with known physical or mental conditions
related
with high chances of delays to improve in their cognitive, motor, sensory
processing, play skills and communication. This has assisted Subiaco
families
to meet the special needs of their children as it enhances development
while
minimising the risk of developmental delay. Occupational therapy is
provided in
settings that are conducive and favourable to the child and family. The
family
has the right to be involved in all aspects of their child’s early
intervention
services and to decide what meets their own family needs as each has its
own
values and culture. The whole family inclusiveness is important and this
is the
reason why occupational therapy is tailor-made to adapt to the particular
family settings with the aim of optimising positive results from the
intervention and support services.

It is clear that Subiaco occupational therapy for children has played and
continues to play a critical role in the
health and development of children who later on in life are not inhibited
in
learning or partaking in other aspects of life which could have been
otherwise
not possible if there was no early intervention.
