What is the role of an Occupational Therapist?
They focus on helping children to overcome barriers that may stop them from participating in activities that are important to them. They help to increase independence, health and wellbeing. For children & young people occupational activities might include;
Self-help skills – Washing, dressing, feeding, toileting
School skills – handwriting, accessing the school environment, concentrating in class
Play skills – fine motor skills, participation in meaningful play, social skills, accessing hobbies
Independent living skills – making a meal, managing finances, travelling in the community, shopping
During the assessment, your occupational therapist will want to understand; what your goals are, what you child struggles with as well as what skills you (and they) would like to improve.
They will observe your child, how they move and how they perform tasks.
We are able to utilise standardised assessments such as, the Sensory Profile 2, which helps understand the needs and difficulties of children with sensory issues or sensory processing disorder.
Occupational Therapy Treatment

Regular 1:1 therapy treatment with our occupational therapist
A programme of exercises & activities to be delivered by parents or school staff
Recommendation of equipment or devices which will make the activity easier

OT led recreation activities
Supported community activities (such as going on the bus or to the supermarket)There are lots of different treatment strategies in our OT’s toolbox and they will come up with a treatment plan that best suits your child’s individual needs.
Our OT’s can complete detailed reports outlining their findings from their assessment, this can include recommendations for your child’s OT needs such as; requirement for future therapy, equipment, adaptions to their environment and so on.
These reports can be used to help support applications to charities for funding, DLA applications as well as accessing additional help in school. We are able to write reports to assist the EHCP application process.
