Widening Participation and Outreach has built long-term relationships with a number of schools in Central West NSW, and has an active regional program centered around Dubbo and Forbes.

Our regional program for primary schools:

The Motor Skills program is delivered in partnership with the Faculty of Health Sciences. University students studying Occupational Therapy - in their 3rd year or as a Masters - undertake clinical placement in our partner schools to provide practical OT support.

As a result of the mOTor Skills program, students will show improvements in:

  • independent work at school
  • motor development skills as measured by Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) assessment
  • participation in class
