Our Occupational Therapy team offer a range of specialist programmes that are designed to improve and develop the independent living skills of students.
These skills are practised in real life situations and settings within the college and local community, and give students the confidence and skills they need to live as independently as possible after college.
As part of their occupational therapy, students will be introduced to a wide variety of adaptive equipment and enabling technologies, as well as strategies that develop self help skills. These include direction of others, sequencing, planning and organisation modules. Our experienced team will also support each student to prepare for the transition back into their community, providing information, advice and guidance on disability adaptations, housing and occupation.
Occupational therapy programmes include:
- Seating and Comfort
- Wheelchair Management
- Wheelchair Maintenance
- Safe Community Access
- Independence for Travel
