About Our Therapy Sessions
Therapy is delivered where it will have the greatest
benefit for you. Integrated therapy occurs in various
locations based on the relevant or natural setting
for the skill to occur. For example, developing fine
motor control skills in a practical cooking lesson.
By delivering therapy at the appropriate time and
location you can learn skills in context, which
helps you to better generalise and transfer the
skills into other situations
