What motivates you in the role that you do?
I am motivated to bring to life the collaborative vision of our team to work with children, their family, and the community in innovative ways so everyone has the platform to be the very best version of themselves. I do believe that a team aligned behind a vision will move mountains.

What is one thing you have learnt from the children/families you support?
The children remind me to be playful and curious. The adults remind me that it is the small things in life, and that when we look back they are the big things.

Occupational Therapsit

PATRICK

What motivates you in the role that you do?
For me, being able to support children and families make sustainable progress towards their life goals is the most rewarding aspect of being an OT at Motivate Kids. Seeing our clients come into each session with a smile and a tremendous amount of determinism makes that process all the more fun and motivating.

What is one thing you have learnt from the children/families you support?
From my perspective, that balance between structure and play, with an emphasis on fun, has been the best way to achieve goals in a sustainable and meaningful way

Occupational Therapist

JORDAN

What motivates you in the role that you do?
What motivates me the most as an Occupational Therapist at Motivate Kids is being able to meet and work with many lovely families, whilst helping their children to learn and develop fundamental life skills in a supportive and caring environment.

What is one thing you have learnt from the
children/families you support?

One thing that I have learnt is how important it is to utilise ‘the just right challenge’ with therapy activities and providing families with rationale behind these so they too can understand the Occupational Therapy perspective behind the activities. 

Occupational Therapist

ALICE

What motivates you in the role that you do?
I love that every day is different. Every child I see has their own strengths and challenges and so my role is to create an environment in which the child will experience achievement and ‘just the right’ amount of challenge to keep their skills developing and their positive sense of self increasing. No two sessions or therapy plans are alike – and I love it that way!

What is one thing you have learnt from the
children/families you support?

To never make assumptions about a child’s capacity or abilities.
Allowing space for some positive risk-taking can sometimes award the greatest progress.
