Occupational Therapy for Children (West Sussex)

We provide assessment and therapy to help children develop life skills and increase their participation in school. We work with children who have a variety of difficulties including children with developmental delay, learning difficulties, physical difficulties, sensory or coordination problems. We can help children develop play and self care skills such dressing, eating and drinking, washing and toileting, and can help children achieve their potential in school by developing their fine motor and coordination skills.

We may offer advice and support or offer individual or group therapy to help children develop specific skills. Other strategies include recommending changes to the environment by recommending specialist equipment such as small kitchen aids or chairs.
