Sian Eckersley: Paediatric Occupational Therapist

The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate as fully as is possible in the activities of everyday life.

As a Paediatric Occupational Therapist, I work closely with children and their families in their homes, schools and other environments. I work with education staff and health care providers to identify areas of need in order to help with specific difficulties. This work comprises:

  •  Detailed assessment of the child's needs.

      •  Provision of a comprehensive verbal and written report.

          •  Treatment plans and programmes based on the needs identified during assessment.

              •   Individual therapy treatment sessions as required.
                • Based in Hampshire and working principally in the greater Portsmouth area, I also run clinics and see patients on the South Coast and in London.

                  My qualifications include the following:

                  BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy
                  Sensory Integration Practitioner
                  Accredited Dynamic Movement Orthotics Practitioner (DMO)
                  Post -graduate Diploma: Nursery Foundation Teaching Dip. (Montessori Method)
