Our services are mostly provided in Community Health Centres and some Early Childhood Health Centres in Sydney Local Health District.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please bring your child’s:

  • Blue Book (Personal Health Record)
  • Occupational therapy questionnaire. This will be sent to you by your occupational therapist before your appointment

What can I expect for my appointment?

When you arrive at the Community Health Centre, you will be greeted by the receptionist. This person will let your occupational therapist know that you have arrived.

During the appointment, your occupational therapist will have a chat with you about your child's strengths and difficulties. Then they will complete an assessment with your child and talk to you about your child’s goals and treatment options.

Who will I meet at my appointment?

You will meet your occupational therapist.

Sometimes your occupational therapist will be accompanied by a student. This student is studying occupational therapy at university.
