GriffinOT is Here to Help

From worries about pencil grasp to questions on sensory processing disorder and autism, Griffin Occupational Therapy is here to help.  If you’re at the start of your journey, our website has a wide range of posts to help answer your questions.  For those who want to learn more we offer a range of online training courses.  Our materials are designed to help educators, parents and health professionals understand their children’s coordination and sensory processing needs.  You can learn more about GriffinOT here.

All materials are designed by occupational therapist Kim Griffin.  Drawing on her 15 years of experience, Kim is on a social mission to make sensory processing disorder training and motor skill development programmes affordable and accessible to all.  Learn more about Kim here.

“Parents and educators are all too often left to organise their children’s occupational therapy programme with little support and limited training.  Through online resources and training I am aiming to change this.”

Testimonials

“This introductory course to SPD is perfectly pitched: it deals with very complex concepts in a clear, direct way which is accessible to all. I will be adding the full course to my team’s CPD. Many thanks to GriffinOT”

“I found this course really easy to follow and liked how you could stop and come back to the course over a period of time in order to complete it.”

“The material was clear and understandable, even being unfamiliar with certain terms prior to the course. The videos were engaging and real life examples aided in understanding the topic further.”

“This was such a useful course. We have very little access to an OT in school and an increasing number of children with sensory processing difficulties. This course has enabled me to gain a better understanding of their needs and as SENCO better support class teachers who are working hard to meet the needs of all their pupils – thank you.”
