Working with schools and families to support the learning, participation and development of children
Occupational Therapy (OT) is a Science degree- based, health and social care profession, concerned with promoting a balanced range of "occupations" to support health and wellbeing.
Occupations for children and young people may include: areas of self-care (for example dressing , eating a meal, using the toilet); work or being productive (for example playing, attending school or university, volunteering, caring for others); and leisure (for example playing or socialising with friends, doing hobbies or sport).
Children and young people may experience disruption to their occupations due to injury, illness or disability, family circumstances, or at times of transition (RCOT).
The School OT utilises a holistic approach to support children & young people to do what they need and / or want to do in daily life, taking into account their individual abilities, strengths and needs. Working in collaboration with the child, their family and other key people (for example school staff), promotes identification of need, whilst support, training and provision of information enhances knowledge and understanding of that need.
Attending school is one of the main occupations of children . The School OT can support children, with or without a diagnosis, who are having difficulty in participating in daily school routines and activities.
