Amy Lee is a graduate Occupational Therapist who helps children and their families enjoy everyday activities that would otherwise be out of reach. She is a strength-based and family-centred therapist who tailors her approach to assessment and intervention based on the client’s goals to create long-lasting impacts.
Amy is passionate about paediatrics and has experience working with various conditions, including developmental disability.
She has a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (BOccThy) from the Australian Catholic University. Currently, she is a member of Occupational Therapy Australia.
Before finishing her degree, Amy worked with numerous families as a paediatric disability support worker. She also taught children with disabilities how to dance at Do Dance Academy, located on Brisbane’s northside. While undertaking student clinical placement, she gained valuable experience participating in various projects, including the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Service, where she helped develop written resources that support children with cerebral palsy with increasing independence in daily life. She also worked in community paediatrics during one of her student placements, where she developed skills in areas including infant development, feeding and play-based therapy.
The time Amy spent at Do Dance Academy was what inspired her to pursue a career in occupational therapy. She loved building relationships with the children and their families and seeing the impact she could make on their lives. She now strives to help individuals to reach their fullest potential in life by using her expertise to provide holistic, evidence-based support.
Amy looks forward to embarking on a new journey with you and your child and hopes to build a lasting relationship that will aid your family in reaching their goals and improve overall wellbeing and independence.
