Sylvana Spina

Available at Kelvin Grove
Occupational Therapist


Sylvana has over 24 years experience working in paediatrics with children and their families in community health, schools, education departments in Queensland and the USA as well as private practice and disability services. Sylvana has a team approach when working to support children achieving their life goals. Her OT service, Abilities Therapy, aims to support families, schools and other professionals in developing a child or adolescent’s functional life skills using fun and targeted activities and therapies. This may include anything from handwriting to social skills to sensory processing needs (such as the Alert or Engine program) to organisational skills, and anything in between!

Sylvana is passionate about helping individuals enhance their performance and achieve life occupations and roles. For kids, these are play, self-care, school-work, learning, leisure and social skills. Sylvana works collaboratively on goals to target skill and role development whilst supporting the child’s learning and sensory needs. This means helping kids maintain an optimum alert state in the best learning environment for them to attend, learn, participate and complete life activities at home, school and in the community.
