Sensory & Physical Difficulties

We consider each client we work with as an individual; some may have a diagnosis of a particular condition, others may not. We are experienced working with clients with diagnoses including;
- Sensory Processing Disorder or Difficulties

- Attachment Difficulties
- Developmental Trauma, including medical and relational
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Cerebral Palsy
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Developmental Delay
- Chromosomal or Genetic Conditions
- Learning Difficulties
We have a range of approaches which may meet the needs of your child, and we work alongside other Professionals in a holistic way. Approaches that we use may include Sensory Integration, Sensory Attachment Intervention, or other approaches. This will be discussed between yourself and the Occupational Therapist. You can read more about these on our website.
We help to enable children and families to meaningfully engage in their everyday lives – “helping people to live not exist” (RCOT)
We consider how each person’s individual sensory processing impacts upon their daily occupations, and how we can help to support this.
Sensory Attachment Intervention (SAI) is an integrative and holistic approach to the treatment of relational, medical or social trauma.
Assessment may include direct or indirect methods, and may be completed holistically, or to inform existing assessment or therapeutic work.
Treatment and intervention may be delivered within the home, school, or other setting as appropriate.
We provide in-reach consultation and supervision services to teams, or additionally can work on an individual basis.

Sensory Patterns and Stress Regulation Workshop Day
“I can’t even express how helpful I found the whole day. I’ve attended many great trainings over the years as a Foster Carer and ELC practitioner, but this training was the most powerful. I’ve come away with so many ideas to help our wee boy, to help myself and the rest of our family”
