Occupational Therapy

The Children’s Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with children and young people who have physical disabilities and co-ordination difficulties.

They treat the specific problems of children with poor gross and fine motor co- ordination and visual perceptual difficulties where they have significant impact on activities of daily living skills e.g. washing, dressing, eating, toileting; play and leisure activities and accessing the school curriculum i.e. ability to participate in school lessons or move around the school building.
