Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Occupational therapy and physiotherapy

Occupational therapy enables people to participate in daily life to improve their health and wellbeing. Daily life is made up of many activities (or occupations). Occupations for children or young people may include self-care (getting ready to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), being productive (going to nursery or school, or volunteering) and leisure - playing with friends or doing hobbies.

Sensory Integration Occupational Therapists/ID CAMHS:

Sensory integration means how we experience, interpret and react to (or ignore) information from our senses.

Taken from the Sensory Integration Education website

From a sensory integration point of view the Occupational Therapists explore how the sensory integration difficulties impact the child’s participation in their daily activities (what they want to, need to or are expected to do).

At ID CAMHS looking into sensory integration challenges is often part of a multidisciplinary team approach exploring whether the child’s mental health difficulties and/or behaviours that challenge are rooted in sensory integration difficulties. We offer training for parents, complete individual assessments, provide recommendations for helpful activities for home and school to support the child’s sensory needs and offer individual Ayres Sensory Integration (ASI) therapy to those who need it at their therapy space.
