Occupational Therapy Week 2019, 4-10 November, Toby

Occupational Therapists assist students to participate effectively in all areas of everyday life.  They work within the multi-disciplinary team and support and train staff to facilitate student involvement in all activities that are important to the student, including:

Enjoyment, satisfaction and a sense of achievement in taking part in activities leads to learning and mastering new skills and developing positive self esteem.

Physical wellbeing, for example improved stamina may be achieved through taking part in an enjoyable activity such as gardening.

Activities are opportunities for shared experiences and promote communication and social interaction.
