​Occupational Therapy

What is paediatric occupational therapy?

Paediatric occupational therapists work with children and young people with physical, sensory or cognitive difficulties, to help them achieve and maintain independence in the activities (occupations) of everyday life. They do this by assessing an individual’s needs and putting into place an intervention strategy that facilitates the acquisition and development of skills.

Occupations for children and young people include personal care (i.e. getting dressed, toileting or eating), learning (i.e. attending nursery or school) and socialising (i.e. playing with friends or going out shopping).
