Carmen Ip

Occupational Therapist

Carmen is a 2010 graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy which she completed at Edith Cowan University, Perth. Since then, she has worked in paediatric disability, specialising in Early Intervention (EI) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Being an enthusiastic Occupational Therapist, Carmen loves being a part of a child’s journey and helping them reach their full potential. She is passionate about family-centred practice, evidence-based practice and upskilling the important people in a child’s life in how to best support them, from a strengths-based and holistic approach.

She is experienced in the areas of fine and gross motor development, mealtimes, handwriting, social skills, and sensory processing. This includes delivering individual and group-based therapy for children with a range of needs, such as Global Developmental Delay (GDD), Cerebral Palsy (CP), Down Syndrome, Hearing Impairment, and Vision Impairment.  She has worked with children in their naturalistic environments (home, childcare, school and other early childhood settings) in Perth and overseas (Baby Orphanage, Vision Impairment School – primary), Women’s Shelter – Mothers and young children, and Refugee School – primary).  Carmen also has experience working within a Transdisciplinary team, Key Worker model (team around the child), has provided internal training to staff and coaching to parents, and supervised final year Occupational Therapy students on clinical placements.

In her free time, she enjoys babysitting her young nieces and nephews, baking, playing board games, going on outdoor adventures and values the importance of leisure activities. Carmen looks forward to meeting you and your child and working with you both to achieve your therapy goals.
