Frequently asked questions

Clinic appointments

 

How do we rearrange or cancel an appointment?
We would always appreciate you letting us know if you're unable to make your appointment. You can do this by contacting our admin team on 0191 3876359 or emailing cdda-tr.childrensoccupationaltherapy@nhs.net

Can I bring siblings?
Siblings are welcome to attend appointments. However, if it is possible to arrange childcare this would make the session easier for parents to talk to the therapist without distractions.

What will I do in the clinic?
Please bring your completed parent questionnaire, which will be sent out with your appointment letter. This looks at your child's functional areas of difficulty which will be discussed with the Occupational Therapist. Your child may be asked to participate in activities at the table or on the floor to assess their need.

What should I wear?
Be mindful that your child may be required to do exercises on the floor.
