An Occupational Therapist (OT) can provide assessment, intervention and advice to disabled children and adults who have difficulties with everyday activities.
Occupational Therapists also advise on equipment for disabled children and adults, adaptations to the home and undertake functional assessments.
OTs are usually based in a hospital, school, community clinic or health centre, referral is through a health professional.
Depending on where you live, occupational therapy services may be accessed via the GP or Social Services. We would advise contacting your GP in the first instance but you may need to contact your local Social Services Department, especially if you need OT assessment for equipment in the home or in connection with home adaptations.
