Occupational Therapy for Children

The Occupational Therapy service for Children and Young People can assist with:

  • Assessing the current home environment;
  • Viewing new properties to advise on their suitability and adaptability;
  • Involvement with architects and surveyors to achieve the correct outcome for the family;
  • Reading plans and scale drawings to ensure adequate space in the home for equipment;
  • Advising on specialist equipment;
  • Working in partnership with other professionals to take into account all aspects of the child’s routine; and
  • Problem solving.
The service is delivered by an Occupational Therapist with extensive experience in assessing specialist equipment, to take account of the changing needs of a child as they grow and develop.  She will also consider the needs of the parents and siblings, as well as carers, to ensure safety and accessibility for all members of the family.
