I am happy to accept referrals for Occupational Therapy from anybody who needs help:
- Young people
- Educators (home, schools and colleges)
- Case Managers
- Local Authorities
- Health boards
The service I provide can be a one-off or it may be for a longer period of time. I’m happy to discuss this with the referrer as we go through the OT process.
I am very aware that it can be difficult to access statutory services (NHS, education, etc.) to meet your child or young person’s needs and this is why I am aiming for “access for all”. I will only turn someone away if Occupational Therapy would not be appropriate for them.
The child or young person doesn’t need a diagnosis and doesn’t need other professionals involved. As an Occupational Therapist I work on supporting function, with an aim to help the child or young person to achieve their goals.
