Parent / Caregiver Education Sessions

The Building Blocks team is passionate about assisting children to reach their potential and supporting caregivers in their role of enabling children’s development. With this in mind we surveyed our families and developed our Education Sessions in response to identified needs and interest.

These sessions are open to all prospective, new and current clients.  Please be aware that numbers are limited so registration is required.  Our Autism and Emotional Regulation Workshops have been very popular and we have an ongoing waitlist for them. 


Please contact us to inquire about any current workshops that we may be running including: topic, date, venue, cost and registering. Caregiver training and education may be funded through your child's Capacity Building Budget (Improved Daily Living Skills).





An initial assessment will take between one and two hours. It may include a  parent interview and questionnaire; teacher questionnaire; classroom observations (if relevant); clinical observations; and standardised and non standardised assessments based on the age and need of the child.


Individual Therapy

Depending on your child’s developmental needs and your family’s circumstances your child’s therapist will recommend either weekly or fortnightly sessions. Therapy includes: targeted Occupational Therapy intervention; feedback on your child’s progress and home fun / practice if relevant.

Functional Capacity Assessments

Building Blocks OT 4 Kids offers Functional Capacity Assessments (FCAs) for children 2-14 years of age who are autistic, have a developmental delay, intellectual disability and for some genetic conditions or syndromes.  Please be aware that we are not able to conduct an assessment for your child or client if they require physical supports as our staff are not trained in assistive equipment and /or home modifications.  Should you wish to know more about how we conduct FCAs, time required and cost please contact us and request our FCA handout.

Group Therapy

There may be times in your child’s treatment plan that they would benefit from group intervention.  We take particular care to match clients according to needs, interests and personalities.  Our groups are only open to existing clients.  We build our groups around our clients' needs.  Your child's occupational therapist will discuss with you the value of group therapy depending on individual goals, support needs and progress.  


School Services

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with schools their specific needs and collaboratively design a service that promotes their students' foundational skill development to enhance participation and confidence within the classroom and school yard.

Professional Supervision

Professional supervision can help you feel more supported in your role whether you are an early career therapist, an experienced therapist, changing your field of practice, work for yourself or an organisation.  We provide a confidential, safe and supportive environment and facilitate you to critically reflect on your practice through flexible sessions tailored to your caseload, questions and individual needs.
