Who are we?
Occupational Therapy can help babies, infants, children and young people grow, learn, have fun, socialise and play so they can develop, thrive and reach their full potential.
Occupations for children include all the things they need and want to do on a daily basis like:
• getting dressed
• cleaning their teeth
• toileting and washing
• feeding and eating
• participate at nursery/school
• play and leisure (sports, games, hobbies and social life)
This service supports children and young people who may find it difficult to do their best in these activities.
What do we do?
All new requests for assistance are screened by the Occupational Therapy locality team. If a child is accepted, you as the parent or carer will be contacted by the Occupational Therapy Team. They work within local communities with children/young people and their families in a range of settings including home, nurseries, schools and clinics.
