Nurturing Your Child’s Growth through Occupational Therapy in Singapore

In the intricate tapestry of childhood development, some children may need more support than others. In the previous blog, we explored the effectiveness of child counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and play therapy services in Singapore. Today, we’ll be introducing how Occupational Therapy singapore creates a strong foundation for your children to flourish in their developmental journey.

Occupational Therapy in Singapore

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is a treatment designed to help children with sensory integration or developmental delays achieve independence in their daily activities, including writing, tying a shoelace, and zipping a jacket. Occupational therapy aids children in their physical, cognitive and social development, ensuring these early challenges do not impact future learning, and enhances their self-esteem.

With occupational therapy, children can:

  • Develop fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys
  • Improve eye–hand coordination 
  • Master basic life skills like bathing, getting dressed, brushing teeth, and self-feeding
  • Learn positive behaviours and social skills by practising how they manage frustration and anger

Here are some key signs that your child may need Occupational Therapy:

  • Delayed oral motor and sensory skills (e.g., difficulty chewing, swallowing, and drinking)
  • Failure to reach physical, age-appropriate developmental milestones such as sitting, crawling or walking
  • Poor fine motor skills (grasping, buttoning, cutting, shoe-tying, utensil use)
  • Not developing age-appropriate play and social skills


At the Integrated International School, our in-house therapist professionals will develop specific goals and interventions personalised to your child’s developmental stage, so that your child can achieve independent, maximised functioning.
