Occupational therapy

What we do

We are an integrated health and social care Occupational Therapy team working with children and young people (0-19) who have specific functional difficulties across Warwickshire. We work with children and their families/carers in a variety of settings, including schools, nurseries and home.

We are part of the Integrated Disability Service (IDS) which brings together professionals from Education and Health & Social Care. There are two Occupational Therapy teams covering Warwickshire - North (based at Lancaster House in Coventry) and South (based at Saltisford Office Park in Warwick).

All qualified Occupational Therapists are registered with the Health Professions Council.

In Warwickshire, Children's Occupational Therapists work with children and young people 0-19 years who have a wide range of differing physical and learning needs. Common conditions include:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Co-ordination difficulties
  • Learning difficulties
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Muscular Dystrophy - and more
Through play and other purposeful activities we assess specific components of function to address difficulties in the following broad areas:
  • Hand function
  • Motor skills
  • Upper limb splinting
  • Perceptual development
  • Self-care skills
  • Assessment for specialist equipment & housing adaptations
  • Sensory processing (offered through a separate traded service)
