Taylor Read

Occupational Therapist

Qualifications

– Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours), University of Queensland

I chose to pursue a degree in Occupational Therapy (OT) because I am passionate about helping children, adults and families reach their goals and maintain a high quality of life. My interest in paediatrics was peaked following a primary school program where I delivered a handwriting, fine and gross motor program.  

The most rewarding part of being an OT is watching people reach their fullest potential, promoting confidence and facilitating independence in everyday tasks through building capacity/skills. I am very fortunate to be part of this journey. My clients are the inspiration for my continued work in this area.  

I have experience working with children and their families in clinic, school and community settings. I have worked with children with a range of diagnosis including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder, Intellectual Disability and other neurological conditions.  

I also have experience working with adults and aged care clients that have a suffered a stroke, brain injury or have a neurological condition. This work included facilitating increased independence and participation in everyday activities, home modification recommendations, vocational and cognitive assessments, retention of upper limb mobility and equipment prescriptions. Additionally, I have worked with adult clients with physical, cognitive and psychosocial disabilities.
