Paediatric Occupational Therapists are concerned with occupational performance i.e. enabling the child and family to engage more successfully in those activities, which occupy daily life. For children, this may mean playing, socialising, and making the most of school, as much as being able to brush their own teeth or hold a pencil.
Occupational therapy is available for children aged 0 – school leaving age. The following leaflet will provide with more information about this service.
The poster below provides information about the Occupational Therapy advice line which is available for anybody who wants to contact them to discuss functional difficulties.
