Occupational therapy (OT) treatment can help children and young people who have a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability to be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives.

The Occupational Therapy Service provides therapy, advice, equipment and adaptations for children who have disabilities or difficulties with everyday tasks. The service is based at West Ham Lane Health Centre.

Occupational therapists are specially trained to assess and provide advice and intervention for children with any disability and children who experience difficulties with everyday tasks at home, school and at play.

Occupational therapists assist with:

  • specialist equipment
  • home adaptations
  • development of play and personal care skills
  • splinting for chronic conditions
  • coordination and fine motor skills development
  • sensory processing and integration
  • school advice to accommodate the child’s needs. 

Occupational Therapy can help children with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.

Following an assessment of the child’s needs, input is given in the form of programmes, therapy sessions, group sessions, equipment and adaptation provision, guidance to schools and working together with other relevant services to meet the child’s needs
