Active Play Therapies

We are an independent occupational therapy service. We specialise in working with people sensory integration difficulties, emotional regulation difficulties, learning difficulties, picky eating and neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism and ADHD. We work with children and adults - from aged 2 years and over. 

We offer assessments, therapy and training flexibly to families, children, schools and others. 

We have no referral criteria or age limits (anyone of any age over 2 years) and will give advice on what services we think would help, and whether we are the right service or can signpost on to another service. Parents, schools and professionals can buy our services in.
