The Ealing Children's Occupational Therapy Service is committed to ensure a child and their family are able to function in all aspects of their lives to their maximum potential: self-care (e.g. dressing to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), productivity / educational attainment (e.g. playing for young children, attending school) and leisure / socialisation (e.g. playing with friends, participating in sports) etc.
Occupational Therapists provide advice and support to parents, carers and other professionals involved and work across a range of settings where different occupations occur (e.g. home, school, clinics etc.). The unique contribution of Occupational Therapy includes:
- Improving quality of life for children and families
- Minimising barriers to activity participation
- Reducing impact of disability
- Promoting independence and self-management
