OUR STORY

Little Hands OT was established in 2015 with the intention of providing services to children with high and complex needs children.

 

The vision was that Little Hands OT will provide services to children with special needs to enable them to experience the wonders in their surroundings and allow them to participate in and influence their environment. The aim is to empower parents to become confident supporters of their child’s development and advocate on their behalf to achieve the best possible result in all areas of their lives.

 

Since 2015 many things have changed but the vision remained the same and services are provided in
a variety of ways all aimed at supporting the children in every way possible, while being accessible to everyone.
