Here you can access a range of activities and strategies to help build your confidence and become more independent.

Focusing on key areas

It is important to choose the key areas you wish to work on first and concentrate on only one or two things at a time.

OT (occupational therapy) may be able to help you with areas such as:

  • Self-care
  • Organisation and planning
  • Touch typing skills
  • Handwriting
  • Self esteem

Try these strategies with support from your parents and school for the recommended period of time. If you continue to struggle, please complete the referral form on the home page in full and send it to us. Alternatively simply contact us for further advice.
