At House on the Hill – Paediatric Therapy Services in Canberra, we are delighted to be able to provide this unique service to support Neonatal / Ex-Neontal babies and their familes.  Read more below…

Welcome to the NEST!  This is a service designed specifically for babies that are Neonates or Ex-Neonates (0 – 2 years of age) and their families.  Our Occupational Therapists focus on the wellbeing and optimal development of baby, whilst supporting their family to participate in their valued occupations.

Our Neonatal / Ex-Neonatal Occupational Therapy services include:

  • Baby massage – instruction / demonstration.
  • Body work – hands-on touch to aid body needs.
  • Positioning – placing infants on fronts, backs and sides (with and without positioning supports).
  • Sensory play – cuddling, listening to music, reading stories.
  • Tummy time – develop baby’s sensory, visual and motor skills with these exercises.
  • Gross and fine motor development – improve baby’s muscle coordination skills from their fingers to whole body movements.
  • Parent support – developing parent’s toolkits, so they have the knowledge and skills to support baby and the whole family.
  • NDIS application support for infants 0 – 2 years of age.
