The nervous system is like the computer system for our bodies sending messages back and forth between the brain and all the parts of our bodies. Damage to the nervous system (before, during or after birth) can impact motor skills, sensory processing, perceptions, as well as learning and behaviours.
Play, personal care, learning and all areas of daily life can be impacted. Occupational Therapy works alongside other professionals to maximise function and create strategies for overcoming barriers that neurological damage can cause.
At Children’s choice we also have the privilege to work with ‘Magical Mayhem’ using magic therapy as a fun medium to maximise bilateral function, and develop transferable skills to every day living.
