The Kids health information package aims to be a practical, user-friendly and time-efficient resource for therapists to use in conjunction with an occupational therapy program. The package consists of information and activity idea sheets that are based on collective evidence-based clinical experience and current resources and journals. The package uses a standardised format and illustrations are used to enhance the understanding of the information. The activity ideas aim to be practical and fun and many can be incorporated into everyday tasks. It is intended that individual therapists will highlight the specific activities that are most suitable for each child and emphasize the correct way to do the activities. Home program sheet templates are also included in the package.

All our information sheets can be downloaded as PDF files. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader you can download the latest version from http://www.adobe.com/ap/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

The Royal Children's Hospital, the Occupational Therapy Department and the authors accept no responsibility for any inaccuracies, information perceived as misleading, or the success of any activity ideas or treatment regimen detailed in the fact sheets.
