Occupational Therapy services
The Occupational Therapy team at Monash Children’s Hospital work with children and their families to maximise the child’s potential for building and recovering skills. They aim to enhance, enable and empower children’s participation in daily occupations by helping them adapt to the challenges they face as a result of illness, developmental delay, or disability. Daily occupations that the Occupational Therapist will support include self-care (e.g. dressing, showering), productivity (e.g. kindergarten, school), and play/leisure.
Monash Children’s Hospital Acute Occupational Therapy service only accepts referrals from within Monash Health. Referrals can be made via EMR for inpatients and SMR e-Referral for outpatients.
