WE'RE HERE TO HELP

Our occupational therapists focus on promoting fun personalised activities which are outcome driven and proven in practice to improve your functioning in life, help better engagement with people, and reestablishment of health.
Paediatric Occupational Therapy
Mouthworks have occupational therapists who work exclusively with children. Using a play-based approach to therapy, MouthWorks occupational therapists base their sessions on kindness and make them fun and engaging for your child. For children, everything they do in the world involves occupation. We call it play. Whether your child is struggling with handwriting, emotions, completing daily tasks or other types of development delay, our occupational therapists can help with practical strategies that are fun and engaging for young minds.
