Your Child Sits At The Heart of Hope Kids OT

Our Story

Hope Kids OT is founded and led by our Director and Occupational Therapist, May Lee. With more than 15 years of clinical experience and driven by her passion to help children reach their full potential, the Hope Kids OT team of skilled paediatric occupational therapists has now supported and made a difference to more than 1000 families in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

From its inception, Hope Kids OT has embodied a philosophy of connection, inclusion and innovation. This visionary approach has guided our mission ever since, transforming it into a thriving paediatric center with unique therapy spaces and holistic therapy approaches.

We believe that therapy extends beyond enhancing fine motor skills or sensory processing; it is about fostering self-esteem, independence, and a brighter future where every child shines.

What truly sets us apart is our constant pursuit of growth, lifelong learning and excellence. Hope Kids OT embraces a culture where everyone is heard, valued and empowered to shine and reach their fullest potential.
