What is Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy supports individuals to be able to do the things they want and/or need to do in their daily lives. We are whole-heartedly concerned with day-to-day function. Occupational Therapy considers the many influencing factors in a person’s life that might be creating supports, as well as barriers, to their everyday function. Example of such includes motor skills, social development, executive functions, communication and comprehension, environmental/contextual considerations, etc.
Who are we?
Functional focus therapy is a local occupational therapy and speech and language therapy service provider. We offer clinic and community-based therapy options, based off what is considered best for the client.
Where are we based
Our clinic is conveniently located in the heart of Belmont with easy and accessible parking options. Functional Focus Therapy also provides community-based services to clients’ homes, educational settings, training centers, places of employment or other meaningful contexts to an individual. We provide occupational therapy and speech therapy services to the following areas
- 1. Lake Macquarie
- 2. Northern Central Coast
- 3. Newcastle
As a general rule, community visits within 30-minutes of travel time from the clinic are accessible. For visits requiring greater travel periods individualized plans will be made between the therapist, the client and their care team.
Are we for you
Functional Focus Therapy primarily works to support people in the community living with neurodevelopmental differences. Our occupational therapy arm works with children, teens and young adults experiencing a range of difficulties in their everyday lives. Our speech and language therapy arm currently works alongside teens and adults in the local community. Speech therapy services for children will be considered but will need to be discussed individually with the client’s family.
