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

Empowering children to explore their senses.
Sensory Group is step by step a 12-24 week programme designed for children who have difficulties engaging with sensory-based play.

The group is suitable for children with autism or developmental delays who need extra support to engage in messy play and adult led teaching. It is designed for use in an early year’s school setting, but could also be used in a therapy setting or at home if additional children were available to help support the group.
