Occupational therapy

We provide occupational therapy services to education settings to maximise the life chances of children and young people.

What do occupational therapists do?

Occupational therapy improves the lives of individuals through increasing their functional skills, such as handwriting, movement, concentration and processing.

Occupational therapy provides practical support to enable people to facilitate recovery and overcome any barriers that prevent them from doing the activities (occupations) that matter to them. This helps to increase people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life. "Occupation" refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity. This could be essential day-to-day tasks such as self-care, work or leisure.
