Occupational Therapy for Townsville & North Queensland
Assessment and intervention
Occupation isn’t just what you do for work, it is the meaningful activities you perform in your everyday life such as cooking, getting to the shops or dressing. An OT can work with you to identify your strengths and difficulties in these areas and will help you to devise practical solutions.
