Sensory Processing Disorder Training & Motor Skills Programmes

Griffin Occupational Therapy (GriffinOT) provides affordable online children’s therapy solutions for schools and families.  Our packages are designed to help teachers and parents understand and support their children’s sensory processing and/or motor skill challenges.  This includes, but is not limited to, children of all ages who may have sensory issues, motor skill or developmental delays, autism, or ADHD.  Whilst we wholeheartedly believe that direct children’s occupational therapy (OT) intervention is best practice, we are aware that in many cases there is limited or no access to occupational therapists.  GriffinOT online training and programmes can be used alongside direct OT provision or as standalone training.

Our goal is to make this training both high quality and affordable for schools and parents.  We want our training to be easily accessible, which is why our courses are available online.  Our flagship online course ‘Sensory Processing: What’s the Fuss?’ is designed for anyone wanting an introduction to Sensory Processing Disorder.  This includes parents, teachers, teaching assistants, and grandparents.  It also could  be useful for health professionals with little to no knowledge on the topic.

Our courses aim not just to teach you what you can do to help your child or the children you work with.  We strive to help you know why are doing those things.  We also teach you how to do them safely.  All of our courses start with the basics and build from there.  Each course includes tips for safety and correct use of strategies.

At GriffinOT we aim to provide affordable, high quality online occupational therapy solutions for home, school and everywhere!
