Bloom Wellbeing provides a paediatric Occupational Therapy service for children in the western suburbs of Adelaide. Our private clinic room is based in Seaton, or we can bring our OT to your child’s school, kindy or childcare centre (with approval from the centre).

At the core of OT is the concept of play. For children, play is their primary occupation, and it is through play that we can best support them to move forward with their development. Occupational Therapists utilise fun and engaging activities in therapy to assist your child to participate optimally in their everyday activities.

Why do Occupational Therapists LOVE messy play?

Why do Occupational Therapists LOVE messy play?

Something we do a lot of here at Bloom Wellbeing with our paediatric Occupational Therapy crew is “Messy Play” – in any given session one of our kiddos can be found elbow deep in gloop, slime, paint, mud or shaving cream. And while it probably makes more work for...

Way to go, Dad!

It’s not often I strike up conversations with strange men on street corners. But I did yesterday. Well, actually, it was a jetty, not a street corner. And he wasn’t really a strange man, just a stranger. I was waiting on the jetty for a friend –...
