We specialise in the use of a wide range of evidence based treatment approaches to help maximise your child’s development. Often the therapist will usually use a combination of approaches throughout the therapy process.
Some of these include: neurodevelopmental and psychosocial models of care, sensory integration therapy, perceptual motor approaches, sensory motor approaches, sensory attachment interventions,
We aim to make all of our sessions as fun and as relaxed as possible.
Why Choose Occupational Therapy?
Have they already got a diagnosis? Are they struggling with some aspects at home or school?
This worry can cause a lot of stress, as parents the first thing we ask ourselves is “what am I not doing right”?
Occasionally, children just need a little extra support in their development, or focus on certain information being presented or taught in a different way.
Mainly therapy intervention is focused on helping your child to become more regulated or in other words to feel calmer and happier within their bodies.
Occupational Therapy is about enabling your child to participate as fully and meaningfully as possible in their everyday life.
Roots Occupational Therapy values and wants to make their, AND your world more fun, less stressful & most importantly a much happier place for all.

Various Neurodiverse diagnoses
Roots OT caters for all young people from age of birth to 25.
We don’t focus on their diagnosis, rather we focus on what they want to achieve and do despite their diagnosis, in essence living well.
Roots OT takes a neurodiverse approach to your childs needs that is rather than difficulties focused; offering acceptance, comfort and hope to you and your child.
Neurodiversity explains that neurological differences between humans are actually natural genetic variations. Hence, the symptoms of Autism and behaviours are not a “disorder” or something that needs to be “fixed”. In a nutshell, neurodiversity promotes that differences are not defects. They’re just, quite simply, differences.
