Little TheraPeas is a multidisciplinary Sunshine Coast paediatric therapy clinic offering Occupational Therapy (OT) and Therapy Assistant services delivered from our Caloundra clinic. School and home visits can also be facilitated. Our passion is to help children and their families reach independence and success throughout their lives. Our focus is to build a supportive, fun and friendly environment which focuses on building rapport with you and your little pea. This helps get the most out of therapy to achieve your child’s goals and make a difference to their life and in turn your life. We also have therapy assistants who run therapist directed programs and groups that provide value for money options for family support and to achieve goals sooner.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) work across all ages and stages of life to help people achieve independence, maintain function and perform meaningful ‘occupations’ (a word OTs use for everyday tasks and activities).
At Little TheraPeas our OTs work with children and their families to help them meet their developmental milestones, increase independence and live life with joie de vivre.
A Therapy Assistant can support your child to practice the skills they learn in therapy and apply these throughout their daily life, whether at home, school or out in the community. All of our Therapy Assistants work in collaboration with a qualified therapist to implement a tailored treatment plan to support your child to work towards their unique goals.
Pretend play is one of the most important ‘occupations’ for Little Peas. It is a way for them to establish, build and solidify their developmental skills including self care skills, social skills, cognition, abstract thought, language, emotion regulation, fine and gross motor skills.
Sunshine Sign and Sing’s mission is to make children’s Key Word Sign available and widely used across Australia.
