talk to us about your requirements

We Work With

We welcome a range of different enquiries from parents or carers to organisations or charities. We understand that each enquiry has its own specific requirements. We will take care to ensure that we find the right therapist for your needs.

Parents

We enjoy working closely with parents, and together we work as a team, to get the best outcome for your child. We are happy to arrange an initial phone call or a Zoom meeting so the therapist can introduce themselves and have a chat before they visit you and your child. If the appointment to see your child takes place at school, we are pleased to chat to you and provide feedback after this.

Schools

We offer assessments and regular therapy sessions into various school settings. We work with relevant staff members who are involved in the provision of a child. This may include a child’s teacher, learning support worker, or the SENCO. We also have a regular therapy morning at The Llewellyn School.

Community Interest Companies (CIC)

We enjoy building a working relationship with CICs. We are pleased to be a part of these forward-thinking and outward-looking enterprises which benefit the communities that they work within.

  • Brogdale CIC – We work in 5 of Brogdale’s Craftworks College sites.
Case Managers

Working with case managers often offers us the opportunity to deliver our therapy as part of a multidisciplinary team. Working towards shared goals in a care plan and seeing client progress is one of the most rewarding parts of our role.

Care Organisations

We have experience working with a variety of care organisations and enjoy liaising with staff in order to set up the best arrangements to provide therapy to those who they benefit.

Charities

Working with charities brings a different aspect to the work we do. We enjoy communicating with charity coordinators and working together to give the clients the best possible care and outcomes.

As a Case Manager, I need to work alongside private therapists that are flexible, motivated, and knowledgeable. I also need the system around that therapist to be organised and methodical. I’m happy to report that working with Kent Occupational Therapy has provided all of this! I find that the occupational therapist is flexible to our client’s needs, and takes into account the child’s family and their individual life circumstances. She has been able to recommend and introduce appropriate equipment, which has made a positive difference to our client and allowed him to be more fully included in family life. She has started therapy intervention at a pace that is acceptable to the client. She is fully client-focused and proactive. I receive written monthly updates which keep me up to date with work completed and the next set of plans.
