Paediatric Occupational Therapy


Paediatric Occupational Therapy provides support in enabling children to participate more successfully in daily life. The focus is to improve functional performance for play, self-care, leisure and education. The Kingston Occupational Therapy Service have prepared a resource pack of strategies and advice which includes videos of exercises (see example above) which is designed to provide further support across the Early Years Foundation Stage in the key occupational therapy areas of:

  • Posture and mobility
  • Self-care
  • Hand skills
  • Sensory skills
  • Perceptual and organisational skills
  • Participation

All the resources in the pack can be viewed and downloaded from the Occupational Therapies Strategies and Advice pages and Video Library in the Health Services section of the SEND Local Offer (opens a new window)
