Sarah Butler, Occupational Therapy 

I offer an Occupational Therapy (OT) service for

  • People who have difficulty completing the activities that are important to them.  I carry out assessment and intervention for children, adolescents and adults.

 

  • Clinicians seeking professional supervision, guidance on caseload management, or an OT perspective to enhance their transdisciplinary working.

 

  • Schools supporting the individual needs of their students and staff.    

 

This service might suit your needs, if you want to

  • Improve your ability to do an activity, such as those listed below,
  • Understand why the activities are currently hard to do,
  • Discover changes you can make when doing the activities at home/school/work,
  • Attend appointments midweek, weekends or evening times.

 

Occupational Therapy is a health profession that focuses on activities that are hard for a person to do.  Some of the activities I can provide therapy for are:

  • Tying laces, doing buttons, zips or belts
  • Writing neatly or fast enough
  • Using scissors, ruler, glue in school work or art projects
  • Using a knife and fork, feeding neatly, opening food packets and lunch boxes
  • Cycling a bike without stabilisers
  • Learning a new activity (sport, swimming, dance, PE activities)
  • Private self care activities (wiping after toileting, showering and drying self, shampooing hair)
  • Brushing, tying up and plaiting hair
  • Brushing teeth
  • Organising your belongings, packing school bag, using a school locker
  • Setting, and following, routines and timetables.

 

I can work with people who do not have any diagnosed difficulty or condition, as well as people who have diagnoses including Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)/dyspraxia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), genetic syndromes, learning disabilty, acquired brain injury, Cerebral palsy, Spinabifida, and people with emerging difficulties, developmental delays and sensory processing difficulties.
