Functional Skills for Kids Series Welcome to the home of all the Kids Play Space contributions to this year’s most exciting, practical and information packed therapy series!

This is the ‘go to’ series for your TOP therapist tips to support children as they develop everyday skills from personal care to school day functions, community and play skills.

Hosted by Colleen at Sugar Aunts, every month will feature a different functional skill in year long, world wide collaborative project by occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Check out the full series and website links HERE.
