‘Occupational Therapy assists people in developing the “skills for the job of living” necessary for independent and satisfying lives. Services include customized treatment programs to improve one’s ability to perform daily activities; comprehensive home and work evaluations with adaptation recommendations.
Paediatric Rehabilitation Services
Following an initial assessment, we can offer treatment focused around step-by-step, achievable targets within a set of time frame, to help boost a child’s confidence and allow regular reviews of the Way forward – and ultimately to make them as independent as possible in a play-way.
How can the OT Practice help my child?
Activities of Daily Living
We can work with you, your child and/or their school to enable him or her to perform the day-to-day activities - such tasks as using cutlery, dressing etc- that a child needs to grow in independence.
Movement and Coordination difficulties
Many children struggle with activities such as walking, running, jumping and lifting objects, which involves coordinating the larger muscles of the body, and as they grow in the school environment these difficulties can seem highlighted against their peers. We can work with your child at home or our clinic to develop all these skills.
Handwriting and fine motor skills
Coordination of the muscles of the arm and hand is vital for writing and using everyday items such as holding pencil, scissors, toothbrushes, cutlery, unbuttoning, zipping, tying shoe- lace, as is the ability to do these things while processing visual information in order to, say, cut out a picture. Intervention is needed if your child is not able to form letters and numbers correctly, trace and copy shapes accurately which eventually lead to early school failure, lowered self-esteem and can be a hindrance for future performance.
Hand Eye Co-ordination / Visual Perception
This refers to a child’s ability to cognitively process the visual information they perceive and to elicit a physical response i.e. copying information from a class room board. A child who has difficulties in this area will often present as struggling to organize their work neatly on a page (word boundaries), copying text, and remembering images. We can identify these underlying difficulties quickly and can teach home and school strategies to help re build your child’s classroom confidence.
Sensory Processing difficulties
How a child processes and responds to sensory information – i.e. sight, sound, smell, taste and touch – can be reflected in their emotional reactions, and some children find activities as straightforward as putting on clothes distressing because it overloads their senses. We are skilled in helping children develop the ‘sensory integration’ necessary to cope in these circumstances.
Complex Health needs
We appreciate that some children will come to us with more complex physical needs. We can offer the following to these special children: Splinting,Major and Minor Home Adaptations, Large and Small Equipment Advice, Advice on Environmental Control Systems
