How We Can Help?
Occupational Therapists at the Child Development Service can provide a comprehensive assessment of your child to identify areas of difficulty that may be impacting upon your child’s ability to develop the skills they need to become more independent.
This might include difficulties with the development of:
- Fine motor skills such as grasping toys and pencils, managing small items including buttons and zips and coordinating the movements of their fingers to complete activities
- Self-care activities including brushing teeth, getting dressed, using utensils and toileting
- Play skills including interacting with toys, playing alongside and with other children and connecting with parents/carers through play
- Appropriate sensory responses to allow your child to participate in everyday activities such as completing routine hygiene activities (washing hair, brushing teeth, getting dressed), eating a varied diet and being able to settle for play and learning opportunities
If you feel that your child might benefit from seeing an occupational therapist for advice around the completion of everyday activities, please complete an online referral form and intake will contact you.
