WHAT IS THE OT CLUB?
The OT Club is a play based, non-competitive, fun filled group, specifically for children who are experiencing challenges in the areas of motor skills, behavioural skills, cognitive skills and sensory regulation.
WHY DID WE CREATE THE OT CLUB?
While you do not need a diagnosis to participate in The OT Club, we wanted to create a group that was truly inclusive with a neuroaffirmative focus. A group that is fun but also focuses on children's unique abilities and strengths as well as working on important skills. At OT Club all children will feel included, valued and appreciated.
WHAT ACTIVITIES DO YOU DO?
The programme of activities has been carefully designed by Kevin our Senior Paediatric OT and is facilitated by both Kevin and Áine our Occupational Therapy Assistant. At every session of The OT Club we work on improving each child’s gross motor skills such as core and shoulder strength, balance and coordination. We also play many different games to work on social skills, social communication, encouraging cooperation and teamwork as well as body awareness and sensory regulation. Each playful activity has a purpose, the children are learning through play.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Classes are term based and the cost varies by the length of the term.
