Where available, you can attend your consultation online via a video call.
Video calling is as convenient as a phone call, with the added value of face-to-face communication. It can save you time and brings your care closer to home.
Children’s occupational therapists (OTs) work with babies, young and school aged children who have physical, developmental or sensory difficulties, to help them with skills that they need to succeed in everyday life.
This may include:
- Self-care tasks, such as getting dressed, using the toilet, using cutlery and eating meals.
- School skills such as handwriting, using scissors, attending and focusing.
- Play skills, including developmental play, taking turns, ball skills, messy play.
- Sensory processing skills, such as coping with information received by the senses (eg loud noises, bright lights, different textures)
How we can help
- Exploration / assessment of the reasons behind the child’s functional difficulties.
- Advice or therapy to enable the child to work and play to the best of their ability.
- Liaison with parents / carers and other professionals about support and progress of the child.
- Education / training for carers to ensure understanding of and the integration of principals of occupational therapy into all relevant aspects of the child’s life.
