Hello, my name is Nicola and I have been a qualified Occupational Therapist since 2010. I have worked in numerous schools across the country, including Haymerle and Cherry Gardens within Southwark.
My primary goal is to enable the children to participate as fully as possible in school activities. I try to incorporate a meaningful activity to enable those with limitations to achieve their full potential. I will look at self-care skills – such as getting dressed, using cutlery and moving around the school. School skills – handwriting, using scissors, attention, visual perception and sitting positions. Sensory processing skills (how a child understands information from the outside world) – loud noises, bright lights or different textures.
I am currently in school on a Tuesday, if you have any functional concerns regarding your child within school please contact me there.
