Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation Service at Essex County Council supports children and young people who have a substantial and long term disability
How it can help
An occupational therapist will visit your home to find out which daily activities are challenging. They will work with you to make improvements. This might be through:
- finding others ways to do activities
- advice and information
- loaning specialist equipment (such as bathing or seating)
- recommending minor adaptations (such as installing handrails or half steps)
- recommending major adaptations (such as a stairlift or ramped access)
