Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Many children with Down syndrome present difficulties with fine motor, gross motor skills and sensory issues which affect their ability to engage in daily activities.

An Occupational Therapist works with children to help them gain the functional skills they require to achieve their maximum potential at school, home and in play/social activities. OT sessions are fun, creative and stimulating for a child’s development, which not only develops skill, but also boosts self-esteem.

Occupational Therapy sessions are fun, creative and stimulating for a child’s development and self esteem and take place in a combination of settings – in our OT Gym, OT Therapy Room and Multisensory Room.
