Hayley Goodwin's profile

Hayley Goodwin Enabling adults and children with neurodiverse conditions to do the activities they need and want to do.

I am an occupational therapist with years of experience in learning disabilities, dementia, mental health and physical health needs. Both for children and adults. I have a special interest in neurodiverse conditions including dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism. I can offer individual assessments and ongoing treatment sessions (including coaching and skill teaching). I can also assess for equipment to enable you to live safer in your home.

I can assist with staff training, coaching and supervision. I have a list of regular training but I can do bespoke packages on request. I can work alongside my chocolate labrador dog who is an occupational therapy assistant therapy dog.

I am dedicated in promoting independence through specialist assessments, treatment and advice. I am trained in using a number of standardised occupational therapy assessments. I am passionate about supporting individuals to promote their personal potential in their home (including care homes), school and work environments.

I am the Chair of the Eastern Regional RCOT and the Research and Development Lead for specialist section for People with Learning Disabilities. I regularly write articles for occupational therapy publications.

Currently, I can not offer a service to children who have a GP registered in Hertfordshire as it would be a conflict of interest with my NHS role. I also do not attend tribunals.
