Who we are

We are a team of qualified occupational therapists and technical instructors with specialist interests and knowledge in all activities of daily living. We work with children who have difficulties with, for example; fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills and sensory processing.  We work across several clinical sites and will see your child for assessment and treatment at one of these.

What we do

Therapy intervention – carried out by our specialist team including occupational therapy technicians. Each sessions can be up to 45 mins dependent on the individual child. During this session strategies will be demonstrated with you and your child to target specific areas of difficulty.
