Coast and Country Occupational Therapy is a mobile occupational therapy service working in the community to assist children reach their full potential. Coast and Country Occupational Therapy works within home, school and community environments to identify the causes of a child’s difficulties and provide strategies to overcome them. Coast and Country Occupational Therapy uses a family centered and play
based approach, catering for children aged 1-18 years of age.
Anyone can refer (parents, carers, case workers, support coordinators, health professionals, doctors etc). They just have to fill out our referral form and they will be triaged and then put in our system.
Occupational therapists are qualified health professionals who work with all people to do the things they need and want to in all aspects of life, such as taking care of oneself and others, working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events. Occupational therapists call these activities “occupations”, which can be grouped into three broad categories:
- We engage in leisure occupations for relaxation, play and enjoyment
- These often vary person to person, but can include reading, knitting and playing sport
- Self-care occupations enable people to remain active and independent in their everyday lives
- Common examples of self-care include showering, applying make-up and cooking
- Through productivity occupations, people often derive meaning through their contributions
- These change throughout the lifespan, and consist of schoolwork, parenting, volunteering and employment
Occupational therapists are experts in the relationships between what people do, their health, their well-being, and work with people to help make every day living easier. They assist people to manage ongoing symptoms and prevent complications by:
- Building their knowledge and skills
- Finding new ways of doing activities
- Changing the environment to suit their needs

Our friendly, experienced Speech Pathologists can see you in our Moruya clinic or we can visit your home, school, childcare centre, or aged care facility. Our service area extends south toward Narooma and north toward Batemans Bay but we can also provide speech therapy outreach services for those in the Bega Valley and Shoalhaven areas. Where appropriate these outreach services can be supported by online therapy, otherwise known as Telehealth (yes, we’ll provide interactive speech therapy over the web!)
