Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech & Language Therapy as part of Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
- Occupational Therapists (OTs) enable children and young people to take part as fully as possible in activities that are part of their daily lives. OTs work with children and young people who have learning and physical and/or sensory difficulties which impact their ability to participate in normal everyday activities.
- Physiotherapists (Physios) work with children and young people of all ages who have a range of problems that affect their ability to move part or all of their body. By improving range, strength, control, coordination or balance a physio may help a child learn to turn their head, crawl, sit, walk or help with more advanced skills of running, throwing and catching or sports.
- Speech & Language Therapists (SLTs) work with children and young people of all ages with a range of difficulties that impact on communication including: listening, understanding, putting ideas into words, making sentences, speech development, stammering, voice problems, social interaction skills and eating and swallowing difficulties. The service helps children and young people to develop speech, language or alternative means of communication.
