About Us

Kids OT is run by Rae Stott, a registered Occupational Therapist with the Occupational Therapy Board of New Zealand. She has nearly 20 years’ experience working as an Occupational Therapist. Rae has worked with both adults and children in a variety of settings, including contracting to ACC and private insurers, in school settings and more recently working with families in their own homes with The Child Development Service (formerly Te Whanau Kotahi). Rae has degrees in Physical Education (Otago) and Occupational Therapy (Auckland) and she has a passion for using her skills to help children achieve their best potential.

How we help children

Initially children go through an assessment process at Kids OT. This can include observation at home and preschool/school, and there are also a broad range of standardised and play based assessment tools available. Once needs are established then goals are set with the whanau and interventions are planned together. There is a variety of options for intervention including individualised weekly therapeutic sessions (usually 45mins long) to target the child’s specific needs.

Kids OT is well resourced, and we are happy to come to you to provide fun activities that help you and your child work on their individual goals. Children may also be seen at school for individual sessions.

We have a range of sensory equipment that can be loaned to families to trial with their children. Kids OT can liaise with health and education professionals as required and produce professional occupational therapy reports on request.

 

Physical environment

We do not currently operate from a set premises. The therapist will come to you either at home or school, or we can arrange a meeting room for consultations, if this is preferred.
