NHS funded services
Monday- Friday from 08:30 until 16:30 (except bank holdiays)

Occupational therapy enables people to participate in daily life to improve their health and wellbeing. Daily life is made up of many activities (or occupations). Occupations for children or young people may include self-care (getting ready to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), being productive (going to nursery or school) and leisure (playing with friends or doing hobbies). (Royal College of OT, 2019)

Occupational Therapy is an occupation-focused profession. Hence the aim of intervention is to increase the person’s Occupational Performance. Occupation itself (meaningful purposeful activity) is used as the main intervention medium.

The overall aim of the Children’s Occupational Therapy service is to increase the Occupational Performance of children who have either a physical disability or a motor coordination difficulty.
