"The best education does not happen at a desk, but rather engaged in everyday living - hands on, exploring, in active relationship with life"
Who do we help?

These include young people with Learning Difficulties, fine and gross motor problems, Dyspraxia, Developmental Delays, forms of Autism/AD(H)D, Sensory Integration and Sensory Processing Difficulties, Gifted Children with Learning Difficulties, Concentration difficulties, Cerebral Palsy, At-risk children, infants and toddlers, Developmental Co-ordination Disorder, Dyspraxia, Organisational Problems and handwriting difficulties. If your child is struggling in class or you suspect a development difficulty contact us to see if we can help your child. Early intervention is the key.
Following referral, an appointment will be made for an assessment. An assessment takes about two hours and a series of specifically chosen standardised and non-standardised tests are carried out on your child. In discussion with you, your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and how occupational therapy may help your child will be outlined. Following the assessment a comprehensive report will be written, outlining the goals for your child and guidelines for their therapy interventions.
We implement treatment plans that are practical, positive and tailored especially for your particular child and family. We offer individual and group therapy sessions, therapy at home or at school, and in-service training.
