Children's Occupational Therapy - NELFT

The children's occupational therapy team help children with disabilities participate as fully as possible in their everyday activities. Occupational therapists focus on abilities needed for school, play and self care skills such as pencil holding, feeding independently, and using a scooter. The occupational therapy team provides assessment, advice and therapy to develop a child's/young person's daily life skills. They see children at school, home, in multidisciplinary clinics and in community settings.
