Paediatric Occupational Therapy Cork - welcome to our website! Alice Crowley, our Occupational Therapist, works with babies, children and young people who may not be able to participate in occupations/activities of daily living due to the effects of an illness, physical/psychological disability or neurological difficulties.
Cork Paediatric Occupational Therapy
Occupations can be broken into three main areas: self-care (dressing, personal care, eating...), productivity (access to education) and leisure (playing with friends, partaking in hobbies...).
Our Cork Occupational Therapist works with children and families to enable them to achieve and maintain maximum potential and independence in all activities of daily living/occupations. We can suggest alternative ways of doing activities, providing advice to families and school on learning new approaches and educating on adaptive equipment if required.
An O.T. uses therapeutic techniques and activities to help maximise abilities and independence skills. Therapeutic intervention varies according to the needs of the child / young person.
Challenges Your Child May Present With
Children often present with difficulties but may not be diagnosed with a condition, such as:
The initial OT assessment takes the process of parents completing a pre-assessment questionnaire to gather information such as background development, medical history, and attach any supporting reports etc. We will also ask your permission to send the school a pre-assessment questionnaire. Following this, we conduct a face-to-face session with your child which usually lasts 2 hours. This may involve the use of standardised and non-standardised assessment depending on the individual child and highlighted concerns.
