Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists working with children observe a child's occupations. these are the things that the child needs to be able to do to live their lives and fulfil their occupational roles, i.e., to be part of a family, to play, to look after themselves, make friends and go to school to learn!

The primary goals of the Occupational Therapist are to help the child develop, restore and maintain these skills, behaviours and relationships necessary for independent living.

Function and participation is at the centre of our practice – we may use a range of standardised measures and offer treatment approaches including neurodevelopmental [Bobath] and sensory integration frames of reference.

We assess the child's performance and skills in activities that are meaningful to the child. When problems are identified we can help the child to gain the relevant skills or adapt the environment, or make adjustments and compensations for functional challenges. This enables the child to be more productive and satisfied in their development and learning.

Our Occupational Therapists play a significant role in helping a child and the family to adapt to the challenges imposed on everyday life by a physical, psychological or learning disabilities.
