Occupational Therapists are trained to understand the whole person, including their physical, mental, emotional, behavioural, and sensory needs. They will consider the interactions with family, peers, and significant others, as well as the interaction with the environment and community. At Greenfield School we have a core OT team whom assist in:
Seating Assessment and review of specialist seating equipment to promote good postural management and skill development to promote symmetrical posture and the right posture for accessing play/work activities.
Assessment of daily living skills and recommendations of equipment to promote the development of these skills. (Specialist toileting seating/equipment, adapted cutlery or beakers).
Developing Sensory Profiles/Passports for students whom require Sensory Integration Strategies and techniques, which are incorporated into class routines.
These strategies may incorporate Sensory Circuits, Sensory Toys, and Sensory Diet Activities.
