The Children’s Occupational Therapy Service is provided for children and young people with disorders or delays that limit their functional abilities and independence who will benefit from occupational therapy.
Occupational therapy helps the patient to develop (or re-gain) functional abilities and improves their independence. It also helps parents and carers in providing care for the child or young person when full independence is not possible.
The team provide assessments, therapy, practical advice, strategies and equipment to ensure children with physical needs are able to develop and achieve functionally, physically, academically, socially and emotionally to reach their full potential with the support of their family and carers.
