Occupational Therapy - Paediatric
We provide an occupational therapy service to children from birth to 18 years of age. This includes assessment, advice, therapeutic programmes and specialist equipment. We work together with children, parents, carers and other professionals in order to facilitate the child or young person to reach their developmental potential and functional independence. Intervention is provided in a variety of settings including clinics, home/respite care and within education settings.
