Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

The purpose of Occupational Therapy is to help a child achieve their maximum potential at school, home and in play/social activities.

Children may experience various challenges in their development, which when understood fully, can be addressed therapeutically to improve a variety of skills from tying shoelaces to concentrating better in class.

We offer a range of services for children. Example services include therapy for dyspraxia, autism, Asperger Syndrome, sensory processing difficulties, intellectual disability, Down’s Syndrome and a range of learning difficulties.

Occupational Therapy focuses on:

  • Motor development
  • Sensory integration
  • Attention & regulation
  • Organisational skills
  • Social skills
  • Emotional balance
  • Learning support
  • Handwriting development
  • Thriving in a school environment
  • Practical living skills

One of our Occupational Therapists (OT) will assess your child and determine the underlying components impinging on their functioning. The OT will identify appropriate strategies to help them. OT’s work closely with parents, teachers and healthcare professionals. We ensure goals and therapeutic interventions are holistic, meaningful and well-targeted to facilitate your child’s optimum development.

Therapy sessions are fun, creative and stimulating for a child’s development whatever their age and level. Our OT’s ensure that your child experiences success in each activity which not only develops their skills but also greatly boosts their self-confidence.
