amazing by design,
complex by nature

 

Welcome to Cornerstone OT for Kids

Cornerstone OT for Kids is a paediatric occupational therapy practice for children and families serving the Daylesford and surrounding region.  Cornerstone OT for Kids believes that kids are amazing by design and is passionate about seeing them reach their potential.

Therapy is offered to support the following areas of development:

  • Sensory processing describes how the brain takes in and makes sense of sensory information.  Sensory information includes our external senses (hearing, touch, vision, taste, smell) and our internal senses (body position, movement and interoception).
  • Gross motor skills use our larger muscle groups to move such as to crawl, walk, run, hop, jump and catch a ball.
  • Fine motor skills use the small muscles of the hands to perform precise movements such as using scissors, holding a pencil, handwriting, and using a knife and fork.
  • Activities of daily living make up the routines of our child’s day and includes eating, dressing, toileting, grooming and sleeping.
  • Play is naturally how children enjoy themselves and learn about their world.  Play is fundamental to language, thinking and social development.
  • Social learning is a term used to describe the thinking behind understanding the social world we live in.  Social learning is a life-long journey.  Cornerstone can support this journey for preschool and early primary aged children.
