About occupational therapy for children

We work with children from birth to adolescence with a wide range physical and learning difficulties, including developmental delays, neurological conditions and autism spectrum disorders.

The purpose of occupational therapy is to help your child achieve their maximum level of independence and quality of life, whatever their condition.

Our therapy team for children

Our team of paediatric occupational therapists will work with you and your child to help them develop the practical skills they need to participate meaningfully in their everyday environment. Your child's therapist will provide personalised care and support, focusing on tasks specific to their age and level of development.

They can suggest ways to make daily tasks easier and help your child to achieve goals and participate in the activities they want to do. They may also suggest specialised equipment or adaptations to your home or school that can help.
