Holistic Occupational Therapy services for adolescents
Hi! We are FunctionAbility, a holistic Occupational Therapy practice that provides a wide range of progressive therapy services to families with adolescents. We specialise in sensory intervention and sensory integration, independent living skills, assistance with EHCP assessment and implementation for adolescents to assist with normal development and areas of occupation such as self-care, productivity/education and social interaction.
Adolescent mental health services
The world around us is rapidly changing and can be demanding on our teenagers. Mental health difficulties amongst these groups are on the rise, and can be detrimental to family life. Difficulties, such as signs of depression and anxiety, can take away from an adolescent's experience of going to school, having friends or spending time with family. Mental health difficulties also have a detrimental impact on an adolescent's cognition and skills development, including self-care, schooling, socialising, learning and participating in leisure activities.
At FunctionAbility, we offer assessments around the impact a mental health challenge is having on the life of an adolescent. We can also assist the family with understanding how to manage these difficulties. Following the assessment and consultation, we may recommend further occupational therapy intervention in the form of education on management strategies, changes to lifestyle and exploration of ways to improve participation in normal daily activities. Contact us today for a consultation and assessment.
