Carousel Occupational Therapy provides specialised occupational therapy services to children aged 0-18 years who have different developmental needs.
With the aim of helping every child to achieve their potentials, we recognise the importance of collaborating with the child’s significant ones. We communicate and work closely with parents, teachers, educators, and other professionals to ensure the treatment plan and therapy strategies can be developed properly and implemented effectively across settings.
We acknowledge every child is unique. Hence, all treatment plans are tailored to meet each child’s needs to increase their skills and promote their participation and independence in daily living activities.
