Occupational Therapy Services for Children and Young Adults
We accept referrals for Occupational Therapy from families, Charities, Solicitors, Case Managers and Statutory Services.
Potential reasons for referral could include difficulties with sensory processing, personal care, life skills, eating and drinking, handwriting, movement and coordination, fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills, gross motor skills, social engagement, anxiety, planning and organisation, etc. We can also explore equipment, adaptations and moving and handling needs. If you would like to book an initial assessment or make an enquiry, please contact Steddy.
Following receipt of a referral, we aim to provide a quote and where accepted, make an appointment within a timely manner to complete an initial assessment. It is a crucial part of Occupational Therapy to understand the individual’s areas of skill and areas where they need to develop or require support. Assessments are holistic, gathering useful information about the individual’s functioning in a multitude of settings (e.g. home, school and the community) and involve the individual and their caregivers.
After the initial assessment, a report will be prepared to outline the individual’s current abilities and the areas that have been identified for further development. Quotes for ongoing therapeutic intervention will be supplied where required.
All paediatric assessments and reports are completed by experienced Paediatric Occupational Therapists. The Occupational Therapists regularly engage in Continuing Professional Development activities to build on their skills and the services that they can offer. If you would like to book an initial assessment or make an enquiry, please contact Steddy.
Within our assessment reports, we will make recommendations for the frequency and type of ongoing therapeutic intervention required. Recommendations are tailored to the individual’s needs and will be goal orientated where possible. Quotes will be produced and discussed with the referrer.
Direct Therapy involves the Occupational Therapist working directly with the individual to develop their skills and to work towards meeting the goals that have been identified. For example, an individual may require weekly sessions. The Occupational Therapist will engage with the wider Multidisciplinary Team where required for the benefit of the individual.
Consultancy involves the Occupational Therapist working alongside the individual, their family and where possible the Multidisciplinary Team to provide advice and assist with skill development so that those closest to the individual can develop skills to meet their needs.
Reports can be prepared at the point of initial assessment, further assessment, interim reviews of goals and at the end of a period of intervention.
