We provide high quality holistic therapy assessments, treatments, advice and care to babies, children and young people with complex and additional needs.
Our aim is to improve the child's function in daily activities so they can achieve their full potential and stay healthy.
We work closely with partner agencies to provide safe, coordinated interventions, which focus on the needs of the child and their family and keep waiting times to a minimum.
We're based at Sale Waterside but also work in a variety of settings including schools, nurseries, clinics and the child’s home.
In 2015 we were one of the trust's Principles of Care Award winners, check out our video below:
On April 1 2017 we redesigned the way we accept occupational therapy referrals from Trafford schools and early years settings. You can find out more about these changes here: FAQ for school and early years setting referrals.
If the referral meets our service criteria, the case is either placed on our waiting list or allocated to an occupational therapist, depending on the level of risk.
After the assessment we will offer programmes, therapy sessions, group sessions, equipment and adaptation provision, guidance to schools and work with other relevant services, as appropriate, to meet the child’s needs.
By working through these with your child, you can help to improve their skills in things like handwriting, ball skills, doing/undoing buttons, using cutlery etc.
Please read our introduction to advice sheets to help you make the most of these resources.
