For Families and Professionals

Developmental Occupational Therapy(WA), known as DOT(WA) is a voluntary organisation that provides support to occupational therapists who work with children within Western Australia. 

DOT(WA) has developed resources for professionals and families including the Play and Early Learning Handouts and Skills for Early Living and Learning. We provide a list of private occupational therapists who work with children as well as a links to other therapy providers.


What do OT’s do?

Occupational therapists assist children to take part in everyday activities at home, day care or elsewhere by building up the child’s skills and considering modifications to the child’s environment. Occupational therapists can target play skills, physical skills, sensory and behaviour issues and daily living tasks such as feeding and dressing.
