Sian Eckersley's profile

Sian Eckersley BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy, Dip. Montessori Ed. (COTSS-IP)

I am a children's occupational therapist with over 15 years experience specialising in Sensory Integration Dysfunction and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I work holistically to incorporate all areas and levels of a child's well being. I focus on the child within the family and within the school setting to enable them to reach their potential. I also treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD-ADHD), Auditory Processing difficulties, Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD), Developmental Delay, Dyspraxia, Fine Motor difficulties and Visual Perception Deficit. . I use Dynamic Splinting and provide Equipment Advice (including seating and postural control). I work with schools to help overcome Handwriting Difficulties using comprehensive assessments and supportive handwriting programmes such as Teodorescu and Handwriting Without Tears. I advise on Learning Difficulties and Physical Impairments to ensure the developmental progress of the child. My work involves a comprehensive assessment of the child using observation and standardised tools. This would be analysed within a report and treatment recommendations given with goals and aims. I provide weekly treatment sessions as well as the option of closely monitored home and school treatment programmes. I work closely with parents, health professionals and schools to ensure the best service delivery for the child.
