Children's Occupational Therapy

What is a Children's Occupational Therapist?

A children’s Occupational therapist has additional knowledge about childhood conditions and child development. They have particular expertise in working with babies, children and young people.

An Occupational Therapist aims to help children with physical needs to take part in everyday activities and be as independent as possible.

Occupational Therapists may be asked to see a child if they have:

  • Developmental difficulties e.g. poor co-ordination, perceptual problems.
  • Physical disabilites or long-term medical conditions e.g. cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and spina bifida
  • Suffered a serious injury
  • Complex needs
