Name of Service or Support
Occupational Therapy Advice Clinic
Description of Service or Support:
The Primary Care Paediatric Occupational Therapy Service provides a monthly advice clinic to parents or carers who wish to seek advice from a Children?s Occupational Therapist, with regards to any aspects of their child?s functional performance with self-care, school or leisure-related activities. The types of parental concerns often discussed include gross motor skills, fine motor skills, concentration and attention, handwriting skills and general daily age-appropriate functional independence.

Parents/ carer?s attend clinic without children. This allows for an open discussion between parents and an Occupational Therapist. Each clinic has appointment slots in which the Paediatric Occupational Therapist can meet with parents on a one-to-one basis. If a child is currently on a waiting list or in receipt of services from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) or the Network Disability Team (NDT) this drop in service will not meet the child?s needs.
