We work with children and young people who have trouble doing everyday activities. This may be due to physical, developmental or sensory difficulties. We aim to help children achieve or maintain their independence at home, nursery or school.
We can help your child develop life skills such as getting dressed, eating independently, using the toilet.
We can also help your child take a full part in their education. For example, we can help them to improve their organisation skills or handwriting. Or support them so they are better able to join in with playtime games and PE.
More information on what we do.
Please note that there is a separate social care occupational therapy service for children. This team assesses whether any changes should be made to a family’s home to help the child or young person be safe and more independent. They also organise any equipment necessary.
How to get support from us
Contact your GP or health visitor to discuss any concerns you have. If your child is at school, you could discuss your concerns with the SENCO. Any health or education professional can refer a child or young person to our service. All referrals go to the Seaside View Child Development Centre referrals panel.
