NHS Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) is a specialist holistic and play-based therapy to maximise a child’s engagement, achievement and independence in everyday activities such as self-care, learning, social interaction and play, despite any physical, social or sensory difficulties. 

OTs are available to support children when they are admitted to an acute hospital or require support in the community either within school or home setting. The NHS offer OT support to schools following a referral made by a professional in education, health or social care, or following a parental referral.  If you think OT support is something your child would benefit from, please speak to your child’s class teacher or the school’s SENDCo.  

The Sunflower Project: 

Middlesbrough’s OT service offers parents a 3 part course on sensory needs in young people. If you would like to learn more about how to support a young person with sensory difficulties, please ask to speak to the school’s SENDCo.
