“Occupation is important for children’s development, health and well-being. A key function of occupational therapy is enabling children and young people to participate in the daily activities (occupations) that they need or want to do”
Royal College of Occupational Therapists, 2019
Occupational therapy helps children to grow, learn, have fun, socialise and play.
Through assessing a child’s performance and skills when completing everyday, important activities we can provide support and intervention to support their development and ability to thrive.
Our team puts children at the heard of everything we do and we run a number of pioneering services.
Through our innovative Sensational Thinking Project we have brought together our community and hospital children’s occupational therapy teams, to support positive sensory development and experiences from birth to adolescence.
Therapists can help children of all ages to develop relevant skills and can adapt the environment or adjust the activity to encourage independence and success, providing more productive and satisfying learning and growing experiences.
Our team can see and assess children in a variety of settings including: hospital, home, nurseries, schools and community venues.
