If you are worried about your child’s daily living skills (e.g. dressing, using cutlery, completing jigsaws, riding a bike, using school tools) you can speak to your school nursing team or GP to find out if your child needs further assessment or to be referred to see an Occupational Therapist.
At CLCH we are the providers of Occupational Therapy services in Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, and Merton. If you do not have a GP in one of these areas, your child should be referred to your local service.
Our Occupational Therapists are highly skilled in the assessment and treatment of children & young people aged 0-19. Occupational Therapists are experts in the area of daily living skills and our particular interest lies in supporting children to do the daily tasks that they need and want to do (e.g. playing with friends, going to school, developing independence in self help tasks).
Occupational Therapists use a holistic approach and consider different factors such as movement skills, sensory skills, regulation and attention when assessing and developing strategies and therapy plans.
Our Occupational Therapists use a range of approaches which are tailored to the child or young person's individual needs, and work in partnership with parents and carers, as well as other professionals known to the child or young person.
