What is Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational Therapy (OT) supports children on their cognitive, physical, social, and motor skills. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable children to participate in the activities of everyday life.
For children aged 2-6, Occupational Therapy programs often focus on play skills, learning strategies, sensory regulation and self-care.
Occupational Therapy strategies can also help to manage sensory issues, which may negatively affect your child’s day to day life. An Occupational Therapy Assessment allows the therapist to devise a specific plan for your child’s individual needs.
In the Childrens Natural Environment Assessment Practice, an Occupational Therapy session may be carried out at the practice or in your child’s home or school. This will be determined by our Senior Occupational Therapist based on your child’s needs.
Your therapist will work with you and your child to support plans put in place by prior Occupational Therapy Assessments. Each session will last approximately 45-60 minutes. This depends on each child’s level of engagement
