The OT Practice Kids

Our passion is to see children fulfil their potential by helping them overcome some of the challenges associated with growing up.

Why OT Practice Kids?

As demand from parents and professionals looking for us to support children increased, we realised they needed a dedicated team to look after them. So we combined our experience, knowledge and skills in working with children into a dedicated service - OT Practice Kids.

OT Practice Kids brings together a team of specialists who fully understand the needs of both children and parents. The team is managed by a leading paediatric occupational therapist providing expert oversight and office based support, available on the phone and email from the initial enquiry through to discharge.

We aim to make children and those who support them, independent of us, not dependent upon our services. To achieve this we believe the best place to see a child is in their own environment. Therefore, OT Practice Kids therapists travel to see a child at home or school rather than operating a clinic setting.
