Occupational therapy

Occupational therapists aim to assist young people to develop skills in education and in everyday life.

They identify the young person’s strengths and work to minimise their functional limitations or develop their existing skills.

Some of the work of the occupational team can include:

  • Input to work on fine motor, sensori-motor, cognitive or social and life skills.
  • Sensory Integration Therapy, which aims to improve sensory processing and motor planning skills.
  • Advice and provision of specialist equipment or adaptations to the environment, such as adapted cutlery, kitchen equipment, specialist seating, bathing or showering equipment.
  • Support and advice for functional skills, such as self-care.

Our therapy teams work together to ensure young people receive a holistic service, tailored to their individual needs.
