It is the role of occupational therapy to help individuals to be as independent as they can be in activities they want or need to do in their daily life. Here at Functional Focus Therapy, it is our philosophy to have real-life change guiding all of our assessment, intervention, and decision-making.
We believe that parents are experts of their children and know their children best. Furthermore, we whole-heartedly recognise that all individuals should be liberated in their ability to make decisions about their own life. Our service aims to provide a different lens to see an individual through, that can deepen others’ understanding of that person and provide insight on various ways to support them.
To best meet the needs of our clients Functional Focus Therapy works across clinic, home and community settings. Our service offers a range of comprehensive assessment, intervention and educational options.
