The occupational therapy (OT) service for children and young people in Camden works with children, families and schools in Camden to promote health and wellbeing through engaging in meaningful activities and occupations to promote independence and participation in all areas of everyday life.
Occupation and participation for children and young people may include self-care (for example getting ready to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), being actively involved and productive at school (for example in the classroom with school work, playing and PE lessons), and leisure (for example playing with friends, socialising with friends, doing hobbies or sports).

This video was produced by Camden SEN and the occupational therapy service for children and young people at the Royal Free Hospital in order to inform children and families about the role of occupational therapy in schools. The video has been designed to support the Camden local offer and will be used to train Camden education staff around OT ways of working and provide awareness of intervention approaches in schools.
