"Occupational Therapy is not bound to a clinic. Through treatment, support and intervention, new skills will evolve.
Through guidance, generalisation, application and integration of these new skills into everyday environments, functional skills will develop.
This needs to be embraced by all to enable the child to succeed in all areas of everyday living, play and access to learning."
R Bradley, Director

''After various other assessments and lots of research I came across the Children's Therapy Solutions website. I'm so pleased to have found them! With CTS OT extensive knowledge, she was able to identify my son’s specific sensory needs, and has given advice for his particular needs. This has been a real step forward for us in getting the correct input and help for our son. CTS is a professional team and I highly recommend their services.''
