The Children’s Occupational Therapy (OT) service helps children and young people participate in everyday activities such as play, participation in school/nursery, as well as managing personal care tasks (mealtime skills, dressing, bathing and practical elements around the use of the toilet).
We work in partnership with families/carers as well as education setting staff to help children who are experiencing significant difficulties as a result of:
- Physical disability
- Neurodevelopmental disorders
- Sensory processing differences
- Motor co-ordination difficulties
We also offer support with transitions between educational settings by giving advice on adapting environments to make these safe and accessible.
We want to help children and young people to lead full and happy lives, to realise their potential and to take part as valued members of their community. We want to support a family to help their child.
The Occupational Therapists and support staff work as part of a multi-disciplinary/multi agency team to provide an integrated family centred approach to therapy provision.
For Children's Occupational Therapy in the community, provided by Peterborough City Council, please see their record.
