Occupational therapy looks at supporting the individual in activities or ‘occupations’ they want to, need to, or are expected to do. Paediatric Occupational Therapists work with children and their families to achieve their goals in motor, cognitive, play and social, and daily living skills. As children learn best through play, Paediatric Occupational Therapists use this as a modality to increase motivation and engagement in activities to help them develop the fundamental skills needed for the children to be able to perform these occupations independently.

Ready Kids Occupational Therapy is a private practice based in Brisbane, Australia. As we expanded, we saw a growing need for Occupational Therapists in homes and schools but there were limited OTs in the area and parents and schools wanted more support. We also saw parents who wanted some Occupational Therapy input for their child but had difficulty with regular cost of therapy.
Ready Kids Membership aims to fill this gap by the use of the online bank of resources. These resources are created by Occupational Therapists and aim to help parents develop skills and offer activity ideas so the child can participate in fun activities at home.
