Children's Therapy Services


The Children’s Therapy Service is made up of specialist Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists.

These members of staff are responsible for the assessment and treatment of children from ages of 0 to 19 years, with disabilities and conditions in the Poole, Bournemouth and East Dorset area.

Corona Virus Information

We are continuing to provide therapy services but the way we provide these services may have changed slightly.

Our service is being delivered in various ways to meet the needs of the children whilst maintaining social distancing.

We are currently providing telephone, video and face to face consultations/assessments for out-patients depending on individual needs. 

Children are being seen in various locations according to their needs and adherence to Covid-19 measures.  The majority of children needing face to face therapy are seen at the Child Development Centre.  For some children, school/nursery and on occasions home visits may be required.  These are arranged and risk assessed on an individual basis.

Staff wear PPE when seeing children face to face.

We have adapted group parent training sessions to online links.

Please see the Corona Virus Resources page for some ideas on how to stay healthy and active during the Corona virus pandemic.
