THERAPY

Initial Session: Child/Adolescent Client

It is very important to Diversum OT that your child/adolescent's therapy journey with us begin with a parent only session so that our OT can obtain information regarding the mental health and well-being of your child/adolescent prior to the OT seeing them. At this session you will be invited to collaborate with the OT on some therapy goals that will support your child and family.

Initial Session: Adult Client

The initial session is an information gathering session to assist the OT to learn more about your unique life experiences, neurotype differences, strengths and challenges. This is a great foundation in developing your individualised therapy goals for subsequent sessions.

Subsequent sessions: Child/Adolescent Client

The OT sessions are conducted in the therapy room with the child/adolescent and the OT. Parents/caregivers are welcome to sit in our beautiful waiting area. The OT may talk to the parent/caregiver for 5 minutes before or after the session, if and when required.

It is recommended that every fourth session is a parent only session so that you can have the opportunity to ask the OT questions, share relevant information about their growth and development, and discuss strategies that can support your child/adolescent and family.

Session duration is 50 minutes, with 10 minutes for documentation.

Subsequent Session: Adult

Session duration is 50 minutes, with 10 minutes for documentation.

Telehealth Sessions: Child/Adolescent/Adults

We are able to provide telehealth sessions if you are unable to attend a face-to-face session. Please inform the OT if this is your preference for therapy prior to your appointment. You will be provided with a link regarding your access of the session.
