Only About Kids (OAK) Occupational Therapy is an Occupational Therapy service for children aged 0-12 years of age with developmental delays, learning difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD. We are a mobile and clinic-based service located in Caroline Springs and surrounding suburbs in Melbourne.

The Only About Kids Occupational Therapy name can be shortened to OAK OT which symbolises the amazing process in which a seedling inside an acorn flourishes into a grand oak tree. At OAK OT, we aim to partner with parents and caregivers to nurture our little acorns and provide them with the life skills and knowledge to grow up to be big and strong.

At OAK we work collaboratively with children, their families, their significant others such as school teachers and any health professionals involved.  We provide assessment, intervention, education and coaching to encourage children to maximise their potential and support their development. 

We deliver individualised programs, have a strong focus on family-centred practice and strongly encourage family participation and engagement. We incorporate fun and playful activities to encourage children’s engagement in therapy, whilst using practical tools that you can utilise at home and out in the community. Parents are the experts in their child’s life, and we want to empower families to continue following on with strategies outside of sessions.
