NHS Children and Young People’s Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children to help them to be more independent with everyday activities, such as self care, school work and any interests or hobbies.

The purpose of the Children and Young People’s Occupational Therapy Service is to enable people to participate in daily activities (or occupations) to improve their health, independence and wellbeing. Occupations for children or young people may include self-care (dressing, eating a meal), being productive (participating in activities at nursery or school,) and play.

We see children with a variety of conditions such as cerebral palsy or autism which can affect their ability both at home and at school. Occupational therapists can help children and young people and their families who may need support and advice if they are not able to participate in their daily occupation.

We have two bases:

  • Children’s & Young Peoples Therapy Centre, 48 Blackwin Street, Gorton Manchester M12 5JY
  • Baguley Clinic, Hall Lane, Baguley , Manchester  M23 1NA
