What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy (OT) is focused on improving the functional abilities of the individual. For children this means helping them do what they need to and want to do every day like making friends, playing and learning .
Children may have difficulties with every day activities due to a variety of factors including, developmental difficulties, specific learning difficulties or disabilities, mental health or behavioural difficulties and sensory integration difficulties. Anna and Amelia may use a range of assessments to understand what is difficult for the child and then recommend strategies to help. For more information about Anna and Amelia, click here.
