Occupational Therapist

Flying Start Children's Therapy

Leigh is a paediatric Occupational Therapist, Mum and a passionate believer in fostering individuality while suporting growth in children. The ultimate gift of being an OT is imparting skills in children which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.  

Leigh has worked closely with young children for the past 10 years, almost 6 of those as a swim instructor while studying, and more recently as a paediatric Occupational Therapist in the disability sector. Leigh loves working hard to understand each family's situation and support them in a way that meets their individual needs. 

A few areas of experience include: primary school transitions; toileting; a range of paediatric group therapies; and supporting children with a variety of conditions including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Developmental Delay & Down Syndrome. 

Leigh believes one of the key ingredients to positive outcomes is building a strong relationship with a child and family, and incorporating as much fun as possible.
