Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic use of self care, work and play activities, togetehr with therapeutic techniques to increase independent function; enhance development and prevent disability.

Occupational Therapy intervention may include adaptation of tasks or the environment to achieve maximum participation and independence and to enhance quality of life.


    The Occupational Therapist plays a significant role in medico-legal, medical negligence and disability insurance assessments, by commenting on a client's physical, functional, and vocational compromise arising from disability or injury. Functional capacity evaluations, work capacity evaluations and job analysis further highlight a worker's abilities and limitations, and form a necessary component of the return to work process. Work site consultations may in addition to the above be required to identify environmental accessibility; and for assistance with job re-alignment, job modifications, and reasonable accommodations to enable workers with disabilities to enjoy equal employment opportunities.


    Broughton and Jonck is a general therapy practice and provides for a range of rehabilitation needs including paediatric and adult rehabilitation. The therapists at Broughton and Jonck have a range of interests, including functional capacity evaluations, sensory integration and neurodevelopmental therapy.
