Kids Matters OT is a safe and supportive community where all staff and clients can grow and live their potential. We are a private paediatric occupational therapy practice with 3 Brisbane locations staffed by experienced therapists who use a combination of cognitive (thinking), motor, emotional, and sensory integration-based techniques to give effective outcomes for children. We work with children with all levels of autism, sensory processing issues, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ ADD), dyslexia and learning difficulties, syndromes, and developmental delays. Our clinics are located in Yeerongpilly, Greenslopes, and Aspley but we serve families from all areas of Brisbane, through our mobile services, as well as providing Telehealth to rural and remote areas across Queensland and further.
Kids Matters is owned and operated by Vivienne Williams (OT) and her husband Peter Williams. Vivienne Williams began in private practice in May 2003 and expanded to a company employing other occupational therapists by January 2007. From the beginning, Vivienne Williams and Kids Matters Occupational Therapists did much advanced training in a range of areas including sensory processing interventions, DIR-Floortime, working memory and executive function assessment and intervention, play, handwriting and skill development, parent coaching, cognitive based treatments (e.g. COOP), parent coaching, therapy assistance dogs, feeding, toileting, sleep and Attachment interventions (Circles of Security). Therapists are supported to develop special interests for better outcomes for clients.
Kids Matters OT runs an early intervention service for babies from 6 weeks of age as we believe that the earlier the intervention, the more successful outcomes along the “normal” developmental continuum.
Our experienced occupational therapists have demonstrated successful outcomes for many children through our individualised programs, customised for specific needs.
Kids Matters OT provides a full range of occupational therapy services including comprehensive assessment, treatment, holiday intensives, telehealth for rural and remote clients and mobile therapy in the home, kindy, and school.
Children who come to our clinic tend to globally improve in confidence, behaviour, anxiety levels, learning skills, play, communication, motor planning, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and self-care. They and their parents can walk forward and explore life more freely, with greater understanding of themselves and others.
