About Monash Clinic for Children and Youth
MUCCY specialises in supporting children with mild to moderate developmental delays to maximise their social, emotional and physical learning potential.
MUCCY is designed for children presenting with mild to moderate developmental delay; who are preparing for school transition, or in early primary school years. We aim to provide a low cost service to children who are not currently eligible or are not accessing other services (i.e. Community health, Early Childhood Intervention or Private Practitioners).
This service is designed for children who would benefit from a little extra practice with fine motor activities relevant to their school participation such as cutting, pencil skills, manipulating small objects, and activities that are designed to strengthen shoulder, hand, and finger muscles.
MUCCY frequently involves Occupational Therapist students, and values the opportunity of this service to provide hands on clinical experience in paediatrics.
MUCCY values the role that students play in the delivery of its service and the opportunity to provide mentoring and practical guidance to the next generation of occupational therapists.
