Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children on increasing independence in everyday activities. We assess and analyse where issues are arising and causing barriers, if they are physical, emotional, social or sensory. We can work with your family or your child individually to address functional difficulties.

We use activities to focus on a child’s sensory responses, hand function, cognitive skills, motor skills and mental/emotional well-being to improve:

Self care; eating, dressing, toileting, teeth cleaning etc.

Emotional and sensory regulation.

Play, sport and hobbies.

School and focused learning.

Hand function and handwriting.

Motivation and goal attainment.

Settling, sleep and relaxation.

Organising self and belongings.

Relationships and friendships.
