Paediatric Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy

Description

Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Physiotherapists (PTs) are employed by Central Cheshire Intergrated Care Partnership (CCICP) toprovide high quality specialist assessment and evidenced based interventions for children and young people to help them achieve their maximum potential with regard to mobility and independent life skills at home and at school. The Therapy staff work throughout different locations, including special schools & community clinics. Children will be seen in a location suitable for their needs and the intervention required. This could be at home, nursery, school or in a clinic. Some of the therapists in the special schools will also carry community caseloads and work throughout school holiday

Once referred to a therapist the child will be assessed and if appropriate a goal orientated treatment programme with will be devised.These will be reviewed and evaluated at agreed intervals, which will be established when the goals have been set. Therapists will work as part of the multidisciplinary team, incorporating children and young people, parents, education staff and other health professionals to promote the child's gross, fine motor and daily living skills

Assessment and treatment may take place within a childs home, nursery, mainstream or special school or within a clinic setting.

As part of the service we also have a Paediatric Orthotic service.
