As a paediatric Occupational Therapist I aim to support the child or young person in reaching their maximum potential in all areas , play, education, social, and self care. I work from a holistic perspective and encourage identification of specific goals to enhance motivation and provide a tangible sense of progression.
I work closely with the family and often school to support achievement of identified goals.
I can carry out assessments in your own home, or at my therapy room.
Subsequent intervention may benefit children and young people experiencing difficulties in the following areas:-
- Fine motor skills – managing buttons, tying laces etc
- Gross motor – P.E./ play time
- Core stability
- Maintaining attention
- Handwriting – slowness, letter reversals, incorrect letter formation, unnecessary capitalisation, floating letters.
- Organisation – difficulty organising bag for the day or desk for classwork/homework
- Sensory processing
- Visual Perception
