Welcome to SPOT

Child & Family Occupational Therapy Services, Kapiti Coast & Online

Is your child struggling to:

Meet developmental or physical milestones?

Manage schoolwork or meet the expectations of school?

Make friends or manage social situations?

Regulate their emotions or manage anxiety?

Respond appropriately to sensory input (without overreacting or underacting)?

We’ll identify what the barrier is, why it is causing difficulty, and how we can make work to manage or overcome this struggle. 


Get in touch today to learn more about our Occupational Therapy Service.

 

How Occupational Therapy Can Help Children & Young People

Learn, Play & Thrive 

A child’s ‘occupations’ are their daily activities: learning, playing, making friends, eating, moving, toileting, and self-care.


Difficulties in these areas can impact on their independence and self-esteem. 


Increased skills in any of these areas improve children’s capabilities and confidence, and the wellbeing of the whole family. 


We help your child, and we help YOU to help your child. We combine 1:1 therapy with parent coaching for a more effective, and empowering solution. 


Less struggling means better living.


We’ve removed the barriers to getting help by ensuring our services are:


Affordable:

We structure services in a way that provides value for money. More cost-effective than individual therapy sessions, you receive ongoing multi-mode support for one monthly fee. 


Accessible:

We’re here to help local families who need help. There’s no waiting on referrals, no official diagnosis required, or a minimum level of disability to use our services. 


Empowering:

You are your child’s expert. Our professional knowledge is always paired with kindness, and respect for your role. No overwhelming terminology or too many goals - we speak your language and take things step by step. 


Effective:

The purpose of our therapy is progress. An increase in skills for your child, greater understanding for you, and solid strategies to help your family thrive. 

Our in-home approach applies to families on the KAPITI COAST. 

For families outside this area, we can support you through online Parent Coaching and educational programs as well as access to our online community of support.

About SPOT

Helping Children, Empowering Parents, & Making a difference.

Based on the Kapiti Coast, New Zealand, Jamie Blank founded SPOT in response to a growing need for occupational therapy for children and families facing additional challenges in their daily lives.


The service focuses on empowering parents, helping children with daily life skills and supporting families in the local community. 


With an end goal of helping children and their families live better lives, Jamie offers a range of services, including parent support and educational programs to help children and their families thrive.


When your child is facing challenges, you need two things - help, and hope.


Your child’s challenges can improve. Your family life can be smoother.


Let me show you how.
