iThrive is incredibly fortunate to have Stephanie Martin join our OT team. Steph completed her education at Edith Cowan University with a Bachelor of Science (Occupational Therapy). Since then, she has worked within the NDIS paediatrics space; working with early intervention children, school-age children, adolescents and young adults. Steph is passionate about working with kids and adolescents to help them achieve their goals, become more independent and to thrive in their daily life.
Steph loves the variety that OT has to offer and the holistic approach that is at its core. She knows that no two children are the same and that their personal, developmental and environmental factors contribute to their own skill set and unique personality. Not only is Steph invested in supporting and building the skills of the kids she sees, but also believes in the importance of building the skill set of the child's support network to maximise the transfer of skills and to support long term outcomes.
Steph always likes to incorporate fun and learning into her sessions through unique and creative interventions. Her friendly, gentle and calming nature helps children to feel comfortable and at ease during therapy sessions. Steph values the strong relationship that is built between herself and her clients, as this results in the best engagement and outcomes in therapy. She takes time to get to know them, their strengths and their interests.
Steph is devoted to professional development in this ever-changing field and enjoys keeping up to date with the evolving research body of occupational therapy.
