Kool KATTS works closely with schools and preschools in Parramatta and the surrounding areas, including offering courses to facilitate development and knowledge sharing. It’s important to us that our therapists have a positive relationship with schools and teachers/educators and many find it helpful to observe your child in the classroom setting.
We offer the following services:
- School-based services
- School-based observations
- School consultations
- School and preschool screenings
Children are conveniently able to work one-on-one with our occupational therapists during school time. These sessions can be conducted in a quiet area of the school or in class depending on the needs of your child and the availability of space at your child’s school.
Our OT’s visit children they are working with to observe them in the classroom. They will typically be assessing:
- play and leisure
- social participation
- self-care skills
- transition and work skills
Having observed a child’s challenges in the school setting, our OTs can help the teachers with strategies to support the children within the classroom.
School and preschool screenings
Working with schools and preschools, we help identify those students that would benefit from OT support. We get children to complete a few fun tasks as part of our screenings. We offer handwriting and school readiness screenings.
