Occupational Therapy (OT) supports health and wellbeing by enabling people to participate in their chosen activities of day to day life

For children this can vary from playing and exploring toys as a baby or toddler, to taking part in school activities, accessing the environment or curriculum, and developing the confidence and skills required for transition to adulthood. If your child is having difficulty in their daily activities, then an OT can help analyse what may be hindering your child’s success and development.
