Children's Occupational Therapy - Lancashire


The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable children and young people to participate as much as possible in activities of everyday life. We incorporate meaningful and purposeful activites to enable those with limitations or impairments to reach their full potential.

As Occupational Therapists we address the questions....  

  • Why does the child/young person have difficulties managing their daily activities (or occupations)?
  • What we can do to make it possible for them to manage better?
  • How will this impact on their health and wellbeing?
