Occupational Therapy (OT)

The Royal College of Occupational Therapists defines OT as the provision of support which empowers people to overcome the barriers preventing them from taking part in certain activities or occupations.

For children and young people with SEND, OT is particularly targeted at helping those with physical or learning disability to develop independence in a range of daily activities and practical tasks to ensure they can deliver to their full potential.This may include self-care or participating in education and leisure activities. For babies receiving therapy OT takes a focus on adapting to one’s environment and involving parents and carers in therapy.

The service works with a range of needs including children with  down syndrome, physical disabilities ,cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, and autism where there are functional concerns, up to age 16.
