Who are we?
Children’s Integrated Therapies in Oxfordshire include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech & language therapy.
We aim to support children and young people and their families by working with our partners in health, education, social care and voluntary and independent agencies.
Each service works together with their trained Technical Instructors to provide a comprehensive service. For children with complex needs who are supported across the therapy teams we have trained Assistant Practitioners who may deliver sessions targeting multiple intervention areas. We are supported by administrators who help the team to run smoothly and efficiently.
Speech and Language Therapy
We support children and young people who have speech, language and communication difficulties to develop the best possible communication skills that they can. For some, this might be spoken communication, and for others it might be learning to use a communication aid, or an approach based on signs, symbols or gestures.
Speech and Language Therapists also assess, treat and advise on eating, drinking and swallowing problems.
Occupational Therapists help children participate in everyday life and become as independent as practically possible at school and at home.
We provide assessments, advice, activity programmes and therapy for children with a range of physical or developmental conditions that affect their daily life.
Through this, we aim to enable each child and family to discover how much they can do for themselves.
We are a team of trained physiotherapists who work with children and young people up to the age of 18 years, to help develop gross motor skills.
Our team help children move and function to the best of their ability, when they have been affected by injury, illness, developmental delay or other disability.
We work in patients’ homes, nursery or schools, as well as at local hospitals, health centres or children’s centres. We will see you as close to home as possible.
