Alison Cairns's profile

Alison Cairns Dip COT, BSc Hons

Ace Children's Occupational Therapy Ltd

Ace Children's Occupational Therapy aims to support the child and family through appropriate assessment and interventions. These assessments may be carried out in the environment where the child is mostly engaged due to their age, for example home, pre-school or college.

I qualified in 1989 & have a background in Neurology & physical disabilities. I have worked as an HPC registered Occupational Therapist with children since 1998. I currently see children in Independent Private Practice. The children have a wide range of conditions & I specialize in Autistic Spectrum Disorders. You can contact me directly to arrange an assessment or for treatment for your child's needs. For further advice without any obligation please refer to my contact details page.
