Referral advice line for those referring to the service
Our Children’s occupational therapy referral advice line is open on Wednesday mornings, 9am to 11am, phone 01432 269584.
The role of the WVT occupational therapists is to assess, evaluate, advise and/or provide intervention for children and young people (aged 0 to 18 or 19, if in special education), whose participation in activities of daily living (including self-care, play, leisure and school) is significantly compromised by physical, motor, sensory or learning difficulties.
The service supports children and young people (aged 0 to 18 or 19, if in special education), where there are barriers in the physical environment at home or nursery/school that impact on function i.e. access to building and facilities, transfers, seating for function.
