The services provided by THINK Therapies range from individual assessment and tailored therapy programs to graded after school and holiday handwriting clubs. Our services are designed to assist our clients to master legible and fluent handwriting skills.
When engaged for an individual assessment our client will be observed by a registered and licensed occupational therapist in an environment familiar for the client to minimize the disruption to routine. From this observation the therapist will present a report detailing observations and recommendations to achieve therapeutic and educational goals.
These recommendations can be integrated into existing learning environments or developed into private tutorial sessions.
