A team of occupational therapists and therapy assistants who work with children aged 0-19 years.

They help children achieve or maintain their maximum level of independence and develop practical life skills to enable them to function and participate to their full potential in the home and classroom.

They help children to overcome their physical or other difficulties.

Staff work in partnership with the children's family or teacher, within Acorn's at Queen Mary's Hospital, in the home or school.
