We help you to improve any tasks you find difficult throughout your day. From the time you get up in the morning to the time you go to bed at night. There are many tasks which you do either because you have to or because you want to. Occupational Therapist’s can help you when you find particular tasks difficult. For example:
- Doing your school work
- Looking after yourself
- Doing your hobbies
Our nickname is OT’s short for Occupational Therapist. When you see us, you can talk about things you find easy and things that are trickier. The OT will ask you to show them how you do things so they can think of some ideas to help you. It may be that there is an easier way of completing the same task or you may be given a piece of equipment to help you achieve the task.
Here are some ideas of what you can do
- Complete activities and games which involve using two hands together.
- Practice the activity you are finding difficult for a short time but on a regular basis.
- Take your time and think about the activity you are about to do before you start.
- If you are going to be seen by an Occupational Therapist, work hard in your session and complete the activities they suggest, as these will help.
- Use any equipment recommended by your Occupational Therapist.
