Community Paediatric Occupational Therapists work with children aged 0 -18 years. They become involved with children who are experiencing difficulty in completing tasks for themselves such as handwriting, toileting, bathing or they may have difficulties in co-ordination and perceptual activities.

Therapists see children in various settings such as home, school and the hospital.

Following the assessment, they may provide therapy, intervention or recommend a programme of activities/exercises that family members can do with their child to help them.
