Occupational Therapy

The Occupational Therapy (OT) Team at Trinity Fields School are employed by Aneurin Bevan Health Board and based at Caerphilly Childrens Centre. It consists of both qualified OTs and OT support Staff.

The role of the occupational therapist is to enable children to function to the best of their ability across areas of self care, productivity (school) and leisure (play).  The OTs will work closely with the child or young person, parents and teachers to develop practical approaches and find solutions to help them get the most from life, whether at school or in the community.

OTs help by finding out which occupations the child/ young person is having difficulty with, and then:

Help the child/ young person develop the skills they need to do everyday things.

Teach the child/ young person, parents or other adults new ways of doing things to make them easier and safer.

Recommend equipment to help make things easier and safer.

If you would like more information about the referral criteria for OT please discuss it with your child's class teacher or Lee-Anne Mason, OT Team Leader who can be contacted through the school.
