At GriffinOT we believe that occupational therapists (OTs) have unique skills which can help children, such as those with autism or developmental delays, who may have sensory difficulties, and /or poor coordination skills.  Our mission is to make sure that all adults supporting children with these difficulties have immediate access to affordable OT expertise.  We do this by providing online children’s OT solutions for schools and families.

To define affordability, we have indexed our pricing model to the UK National Minimum Wage.  This decision was made during Kim’s time at Cambridge Social Ventures.  Here, Kim was challenged to define the term ‘affordability’  as what one person considers ‘affordable’ may not be the same figure another person considers as ‘affordable’.  Kim felt that indexing pricing to the UK National Minimum Wage would provide clarity.  The pricing model has been written into the Company’s Articles of Association.
