Kylie Walsh Occupational Therapist Brisbane
Kylie Walsh provides services which aim to support children who experiences difficulties with learning, to successfully participate in the occupations, that is activities they need to do, want to do and are expected to do.
Kylie has an interest in supporting children to develop skills and confidence in their occupational roles of self-carer, being an active participant in play, a persistent learner and worker as a student. Collaboration with families is critical to this process.
She is passionate about understanding and educating how to best support a child to participate in everyday routines and tasks in an optimal manner to match the demands of the task or environment. This may involve understanding motor capabilities, supporting efficient organisation of sensory input, developing attentional capabilities, prompting effective processing of information and enhancing emotional resilience needed for a task.
Occupational therapy provides learning opportunities for a child through modifying a task, adapting the environment and skill development. It aims to promote looking after one self, optimal learning as a student, forming positive relationships with others to enable community participation.
