Occupational Therapist

Emma Leckenby

Currently operating as a sole practitioner, Emma started Little Rockets as a family-based support service to deliver sustainable and effective occupational therapy to children from birth to 12 years. 

  

As an occupational therapist and mum of two, Emma understands the busy lives of families and the importance of efficient, family-centred practices to help children achieve their goals. Emma brings years of experience into her therapy and builds positive relationships with children and families through fun and collaborative interventions. 

 

Since graduating from LaTrobe University in 2011, Emma has supported children across a wide variety of settings including in a special education pre-school and school, Alfred Health's community health service and in private practice. She is skilled in providing therapy within home, day-care, kinder and school settings and is passionate about supporting children to start school ready to thrive. 

Emma is a registered occupational therapist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority (AHPRA).
