O.C.C. Therapy stands for "On Call Children's Therapy", and reflects our belief that supporting children in their homes and schools is invaluable. You can find us in clinics, homes and schools across Brisbane, Ipswich, Gatton, Toowoomba and Cairns. We believe in supporting and empowering families, and enabling children of all abilities to reach their potential.
We support children of all abilities, who are working toward improving their self care, learning, social or leisure participation. This includes children who are gifted or twice exceptional, have learning difficulties, have diagnoses (e.g. ASD, Down Syndrome, CP, ADHD) or complex needs, or who have experienced psychosocial challenges (e.g. trauma or neglect).
At O.C.C. Therapy, you can be sure of high quality, evidence based, individualized therapy. You can choose between direct therapist intervention, home and school programs and support, or one of our fun and engaging group programs and leisure clubs.

Do weighted vests work?
Weighted vests are sometimes recommended to help children concentrate. Research shows that weighted vests can help reduce fidgeting, time out of their seat, and time off task, as well as inattention, and speed of responding. No improvements in impulse control or automatic vocalisations were noted.
