Sometimes the occupational therapy process can appear complex and therefore difficult for families to understand; this Webinar aims to clarify the role of OT in the overall rehab agenda and highlights what “blind spots” to look out for.

This session is delivered by Rebecca Brookes and Melanie Carson. Rebecca is an OT working with children and their families & is particularly skilled at managing the complex care of her clients, involving home, school and college. Melanie is an OT who has worked across adult and most recently paediatric services in the community and has experience working with clients who have a range of cognitive, physical, emotional and behavioural impairments.

On completion of the Webinar participants will further their understanding of:

  • Why there is a need to keep the focus firmly on the family while delivering what are often complicated programmes for children and young people? •
  • What is the OT process, and how does the role of the OT fit in to paediatric rehab following an ABI?
  • What is the clinical reasoning behind the OT rehabilitation pathway?
  • What are the “blind spots” that can occur and how can you pick them up?

This Webinar will be of interest to:

  • Young people
  • Families, parents, older siblings
