My World Therapy is a specialist Private Paediatric Occupational Therapy Practice. Our Therapy service is called ‘My World Therapy’ – we chose the name because we feel that to effectively support children with Autism, it is important to ‘step into their shoes’, to understand what the world feels like to them.
We provide highly specialist private Occupational Therapy for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Developmental Delay, Developmental Coordination Disorder and syndromes such as such Down Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, William’s Syndrome and Fragile X. Therapy sessions are always fun and use a range of modern treatment approaches to help each child reach their maximum potential.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy helps children to reach their maximum potential with daily living skills such as dressing, feeding and toileting and school skills such as attention, handwriting and scissor skills. Occupational Therapists specifically assess for any sensory and/or motor skills difficulties that may be affecting the child’s ability to carry out typical activities for their age. Occupational Therapists are a core member of the multi-disciplinary team for children with Autism, ADHD, Developmental Delay and Developmental Coordination Disorder.
