Promoting the participation of children by enhancing their ability to participate in everyday life.
'Doing, Being, Becoming and Belonging.’
 Ann Wilcock, 1999

Welcome to our website. Being a part of our community and doing tasks that are valued by our family, friends and wider community is a very important part of who we are. For some children, these skills need a little help in developing and that’s just what we are here for...

As a trans-disciplinary practice, we aim to help the WHOLE child be a part of his WHOLE community, from his family, school, friends and out-and-about. Our team of very experienced therapists and facilitators work together in a unique way to help each child and their family.

For children with motor, sensory or perceptual difficulties, the Occupational Therapist is an integral part of our team. The role of a paediatric Occupational Therapist (OT) is to assess, diagnose and provide intervention for difficulties that inhibit a child’s ability to participate in their daily activities, such as academics, social interactions, play/leisure and self-care.

Therapy for the children is carried out in a child-friendly, lively and bright environment. Development is aided and enhanced through fun and functional activities. Experiential learning is also encouraged and facilitated.

  • Looking after themselves, such as dressing, eating, toileting, brushing teeth, bathing/showering etc.
