Seek Sense OT provides occupational therapy to children of all ages and their families in Dorset and Hampshire. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable children to participate as fully as is possible in the activities of everyday life. The three main areas of occupation in a child's everyday life are self-care (i.e. washing, teeth cleaning, dressing, eating, etc); school; and play.
Occupational Therapists address the question:- "Why does this child have difficulties managing his or her daily activities (or occupations) and what can we change to make it possible for him or her to manage better?"
Children may have any of the following conditions: Autism Spectrum Disorder; ADHD; Developmental Coordination Disorder; poor self regulation including emotions and behaviours; Developmental delay; Learning difficulties; Sensory Processing difficulties; and many more.
All children seen by Seek Sense OT will receive a detailed assessment of their needs; provision of a comprehensive written report; treatment plans and programmes based on the needs identified during assessment; and individual therapy treatment sessions when required.
