Introducing Hannah Draper!

We are very pleased to introduce Hannah Draper to the Child and Adolescent Development Service. Hannah is a registered Occupational Therapist and a member of Occupational Therapy Australia. She has worked primarily in private practice since graduating. She has experience assessing and treating clients presenting with a variety of difficulties with everyday living skills such as play, sleep, toileting, self-care (such as dressing), behaviour, school skills, fine motor skills (including handwriting), gross motor skills and social skills.

Occupation encompasses all of the tasks an individual does in their day and Hannah’s role is to develop a child’s skills through use of evidence based and family centred intervention that is tailored to each child’s needs. She is committed to therapy that is client-centred, creative, holistic, and that incorporates a child’s strengths and interests.

Hannah has always had an interest in working in paediatrics, particularly with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). She also has experience working with children of various ages from 2 to 17 years with diagnoses such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, intellectual disabilities, visual impairments, sensory processing difficulties, and developmental and learning difficulties. Hannah is a recognised provider of early intervention services under the Helping Children with Autism Program (HCWAP) and Better Start Early Intervention program (BSI).
