Occupational Therapist Team (OT)
Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Children's Occupational Therapy
A child's life is made up of occupations (daily activities) these occupations include playing, learning and self-care. We aim to support children to participate more successfully in daily life.
We work with children and their families to success in these activities and to reach their full potential. We are part of the Children’s Acute and Ongoing Needs Service (CAONS).
What we do
We help a child to minimise the impact of their difficulties and improve their ability to participate in their daily occupations by finding ways to overcome any problems they experience.
We see children and young people aged 0 to 18 years, who are experiencing functional difficulties.
These may be as a result of one or more of the following:
- Physical disabilities.
- Complex multiple disabilities.
- An operation or accident.
- Co-ordination difficulties impacting on their ability to function.
- Sensory difficulties impacting on their function and occupational performance.
