Children's Occupational Therapy

Children's Occupational Therapy logo

Croydon Children’s Occupational Therapy Service provides therapy, advice, equipment and adaptations for children who have disabilities or difficulties with everyday tasks. The service is based at the Crystal Centre and we also work in a variety of settings including schools, nurseries, Croydon University Hospital and the child’s home.

Occupational therapists are specially trained to assess and provide advice and intervention for children with any disability and children who experience difficulties with everyday tasks at home, school and at play.

Occupational therapists assist with:
specialist equipment

  • home adaptations
  • development of play and personal care skills
  • splinting for chronic conditions
  • coordination and fine motor skills development
  • sensory processing and integration
  • school advice to accommodate the child’s needs.

Referrals can be made by parents or carers, schools and other professionals. Please contact the service to obtain a referral form. It may be necessary for a completed questionnaire to be returned to the service.

Following an assessment of the child’s needs, input is given in the form of programmes, therapy sessions, group sessions, equipment and adaptation provision, guidance to schools and working together with other relevant services to meet the child’s needs.
