Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC) is an amazing tool to add to your therapy bag. OPC will equip you with the skills to work in a truly collaborative way with clients and their families to achieve goals, problem solve and achieve long term sustainable change.

Learning with Lucy and Arul is invaluable, they combine their theoretical knowledge of OPC with over 50 years of clinical experience working with children and their families. Completing this training with Disability SPOT means you will be surrounded by like minded therapists working in the disability space.

What is OPC?

What does OPC involve?

OPC involves working alongside clients to achieve goals for themselves, their children and/or families. In OPC therapists utilise specific processes of Connection, Structure, and Sharing that facilitate client engagement and goal achievement.
