Self Care

What is Self Care?

Children may have delays in their self care skills as a result of motor planning difficulties, developmental delay, physical disability or merely as a result of lack of practise in our busy family lives. Children benefit from the step wise, goal oriented and positive feedback methods of our experienced occupational therapists along with their skilled tips and methods.
