Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is an essential part of Hannahs multi-disciplinary approach and involves the therapist working with the child, young person or adult to develop independence in daily living skills, from eating and drinking to operating lights. Our young people are continually assessed and therapy is individually tailored to their needs. Occupational Therapy helps the individual to access areas of work and productivity such as education, vocational activities and responsibilities in the home environment.

Key to Occupational Therapy sessions is the Environmental Controls zone. This is a room kitted out with the latest technology to enable disabled people to operate lights, doors, curtains, a television set, music systems and other electrical appliances. Staff also use leisure and play to encourage personal development and self exploration.
