OT for Kids NT is a first of its kind in Darwin and the Northern Territory. We believe that every child is unique and amazing, full of potential and doing the very best they can. We believe that with a helping hand, every child and every family can grow into their potential and live an amazing, successful and fulfilling life.
Our passion drives us to go the extra mile. We see the challenges children and parents face on a daily basis and strive to provide support, encouragement and a simple approach that can work for the whole family. We look at what is happening for your child, in every activity throughout their day, find out what drives them, and help to make the changes that will help them to be the very best version of themselves.
We believe that children are whole and complete, and they have amazing potential inside of them. We understand the world can be an overwhelming place and we help children to connect with the world, with their families and with themselves. Our focus helps children and families to understand each other in new ways, and develop strategies to be able to be the very best they can be.
A team approach is a cornerstone for success and we see your child and family as the most important part of that team. We focus on your goals. We work very closely with other therapists, schools and other services to ensure we are delivering the best quality service to every family.
We provide services across Darwin, Palmerston and rural areas. We provide services where you need them. Our clinic is based in Durack however, home, school or community visits are also available. We visit Katherine, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Nhulunbuy (Gove) and Jabiru. We are also available for consultation via Skype to other remote locations.
We are registered providers for the Helping Children with Autism (HWCA) and Better Start Initiate (BSI) funding packages, along with the NDIS. We are also registered with Medicare and many private health funds will provide a rebate for services (please check with your individual provider).
