Alternative ways to provide children's therapy and encourage participation
Occupational Therapists working in a variety of different services present their experiences of working with children to promote independence and participation through different leisure activities. We hope to include OTs working with Riding for the Disabled, a service linking with a local boxing club to improve inclusive classes, football teams for children with additional needs set up by OTs to play each other in partnership with Leyton Orient football club and a film/photography project in East London by young people with additional needs to discuss their lives. By sharing different ways of doing things it is hoped people will feel encouraged everyone to think about how we can all offer services in an individual and appropriate way.
All welcome at the CYPF Christmas party afterwards in a room above a nearby pub, for some drinks and nibbles.
