Occupational Therapy Department

Children entering Greenwood House are assessed by an occupational therapist.   Parents will be advised should a child require therapy. 


The occupational therapist aims to develop and improve the child’s gross motor skills (ie, balance, coordination, organisation and motor planning) and fine motor skills (ie, hand-eye coordination, dexterity, dominance, pencil control and letter formation).


The therapist works closely with the child’s teacher, classroom assistant, speech and language therapist and parents to ensure a holistic approach through sharing of treatment goals.


Treatment may be provided through

  • individual sessions
  • class based programmes, jointly delivered with the class teacher, e.g, pencil skills groups, gross motor skills groups
  • groups jointly delivered with the child’s speech and language therapist, e.g, attention and listening groups incorporating gross motor skills
