Children’s Occupational Therapy - NHFT
How to contact this service
Occupational therapy (OT) aims to support children and young people in getting the most from their lives and achieving their potential. Occupational therapists (OTs) work with other key people involved in children and young people's lives such as families, other health professionals, education and social care colleagues.
Occupational therapists help with self-care (like eating, drinking, using the toilet, bathing, dressing and personal safety), play and leisure, and school participation (like using classroom equipment and understanding the curriculum). They do this by assessing fine motor skills and coordination, then making recommendations for specialist equipment and minor adaptations that can be made.
Who is this service for? The service works with a wide variety of referred children and young people between the ages of 0-19 years who have specific difficulties in participating in or completing daily activities.
How to access this service: Referrals can be made via the Children and Young People's Referral Management Centre (RMC) by health, social care, and education professionals.
