The Local Therapy Company is an independent occupational therapy service for children, adolescent, and young adults.
We can provide assessment and treatment for a wide range of difficulties experienced by children including:
Sensory Integration Difficulties (slso known as Sensory Processing Disorder)
Dyspraxia and Developmental Coordination Disorder
Autistic Spectrum Disorders including Asperger's Syndrome and Pathological Demand Avoidance
Physical Difficulties and Learning Needs including poor motor skills and handwriting, global developmental delay.
We can offer input for your child at home or at school. Specialised reports for Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) Assessment or SENDIST Tribunals can be prepared once your child has been through our assessment process.
Our service is highly personalised and usually takes place in an environment familiar to the child. We work closely with parents and carers, school staff, other professionals such as educational psychologists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and case managers. We aim to provide an effective and individualised service which makes a real difference to children's and young people's lives.
We also offer training for parents and schools on a range of paediatric subjects.
