Your child may have difficulty with letter
formation, spacing, and sizing which slows
writing and reinforces dislike of the task

sizing, and spacing in order to manage
handwritten tasks.

e.g. washing and drying hands.

Children with autism love structure and routine, they need to understand what they should do. It’s usually when your child doesn’t know what to do with himself that your child will engage in inappropriate behaviour, get frustrated and become difficult to manage.                                   

In Clinical Services Cork we allow children to play the way they play and do the things they find engaging.
We then assist children progress through the developmental stages to develop other more complex skills in play.

We provide them with more opportunities to learn and practice social skills like making friends, cooperating, sharing, taking turns and participating in a group.

We can help your child increase the variety of food intake
when they tend to eat the same type of food
everyday.

Our one to one training helps your child to learn how
to hold and use cutlery functionally.

Building on newly acquired skills, we can help your child
learn how to eat and enjoy the foods that they do not
typically like.

If you believed your child is either a picky eater
or a problem feeder, let us help you!
