Paediatric occupational therapists work with children and their parents to identify difficulties/concerns a child may experience with every day occupations, for example, in relation to self-care, education and play and leisure. It is very important that goals and priorities are agreed with the child and the family and for therapy to be fun and incorporated into everyday routines and activities. I have extensive experience working with children, young people and their family's from 0-25 years with wide ranging disabilities and often complex medical and social needs including Cerebral Palsy and associated physical and communication difficulties, Hemiplegia, Traumatic and Acquired Brain Injury, Meningitis and associated injuries, neuropathic and orthopaedic injuries, neuromuscular conditions; eg Muscular Dystrophy, spinal injuries, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, cancer and other life limiting conditions, complex physical-medical-learning difficulties, Global Developmental Delay, sensory deficits; eg vision and hearing, Erb's Palsy, Developmental Coordination Disorder and handwriting difficulties.

Key Skills • Comprehensive assessment and identification of child/young person/carer needs. • Wide-ranging experience of major and minor adaptation work to residential properties. • Current working knowledge of equipment for children with additional needs. • Considerable experience working in a multi-professional arena, involving staff from the statutory, voluntary and independent sector. • Extensive experience as a care manager ( Westcountry Case Management), commissioning, monitoring, evaluating and streamlining packages of care for clients with a diverse range of needs. • Experience as an expert witness (Jacqueline Webb & Co) attending case conferences and in the preparation of reports and witness statements to be used in litigation.
