Welcome to Our Service

What is the Children and Young People's Occupational Therapy Service?

The Occupational Therapy service enables children and young people to participate as fully as possible in activities as part of their daily lives. We work with children and young people who have difficulties or a disability which impacts upon their daily participation in activities. Occupational Therapists (OT's) help children and young people to carry out activities they need or want to do in areas of self care, school work and play. If a child or young person has learning, sensory or physical difficulties, their ability to grow, learn, socialise and play can be compromised.

Our service works with a variety of children and young people between the ages of 0-19 years who have specific difficulties in participating in or completing daily activities.

Who are we?

Both qualified Occupational Therapists (OT's) and Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTA's) work within the department. Initial assessments are always carried out by a qualified OT. You may receive further assessment and intervention by an OT or an OTA depending on your need. All qualified OT's are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. www.hcpc-uk.org/

Where do we work?

We are based at the City of Coventry Health Centre in the City Centre. Here we offer clinic appointments and group sessions on the fourth floor. If it is appropriate we will see children and young people in a variety of settings across the city. Some examples of these are; within children and young peoples own homes or education settings such as special schools, mainstream schools and nurseries. The input that is required from our service will determine the best environment to see the child/young person.
