Occupational Therapy


Please click here for further information


Occupational Therapist’s (OTs) work with children and young people who have difficulties with daily activities e.g. going to the park, scribbling and drawing, playing with toys, getting dressed, having a bath. We call these ‘occupations’. OTs help children and young people to carry out activities they need or want to do in areas of self-care, school work and play. Our aim is to support children to learn new skills to help them become more independent. We do this together with the parent, child, teacher or other professionals the child may be known to.


For more guidance for parents follow this link to the Welsh Government page 'Parenting. Give it time'.

For more information on understanding your child's development follow this link to the Welsh Government page 'Your child’s development'.


SB University Health Board OT service operates an open referral policy. This means that anyone who is affected by a child’s difficulty in managing daily activities can complete a referral form.  This could include the parents, another family member, the child’s teacher or another professional that works with them.  A referral from anyone other than the person with parental responsibility will not be accepted without consent from that person.  


You can download a referral form using the links below but please read our referral guidelines before completing the form to avoid unnecessary delays.
