Katie qualified with a MSc in Occupational Therapy in 2010 and has since chosen to specialise in paediatrics. She is based in London and visits children at home or in school in the city. To complement her clinical practice Katie has gone on to gain qualifications in sensory integration and sensory oral sequential feeding.
Since graduating, Katie has worked for various different NHS child development teams, caring for children aged 0- 19 years. She treats conditions such as autism, Down's syndrome and sensory processing disorder, as well as having a particular interest in developmental coordination disorder.
Depending on what is appropriate, Katie will assess and treat the child at home or in school, visiting both mainstream and special schools. She provides detailed assessments, identifying all of the child's needs and putting together a treatment plan to help the child maximise their function and overall independence. This includes sensory integration and sensory diets, help with handwriting and fine motor skills and also supporting children with feeding difficulties.
Katie has carried out training to schools and nurseries around visual perception and sensory processing, as well as having run developmental play groups for children under 5 years old.
Katie is just one of our nationwide network of therapists.
