Jules Poulton is a Therapy Pro Senior Occupational Therapist who, for over 13 years, has empowered children and teenagers to develop their independence with everyday skills such as bathing, dressing, functional mobility, and eating.

Jules can support clients with cognitive assessments, sensory and emotional regulation, community access and leisure activities, and recommend appropriate equipment or home modifications.

Experiencing her own challenges in life has enabled Jules to develop a greater understanding and respect for other people’s unique challenges. Jules listens with intent to understand each situation as completely as possible. Her commitment to each person comes from a deep desire to empower clients and their families so they know that they have great worth, value, purpose, and hope for the future.

Jules is committed to encouraging independence in her young clients and routinely approaches their skills development through play.

“I have a big heart for kids. Play is an essential part of early learning.” explains Jules.

With extensive experience working with children and their families in the disability sector, Jules brings a blend of both emotional and practical support to each client and their family. Jules believes the best way to support participants to achieve their goals is to understand the needs and physical surroundings of each client and their family.

Jules can support mealtimes and is a Food Therapy Practitioner – Certified SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) therapist, and is trained in SENSE-ational Mealtimes. With training in trauma therapy and attachment and separation therapy, Jules is a Circle of Security and a Ther-a-play Certified Therapist.
