Information and resources

The occupational therapy service for children and young people has developed a number of resources and information sheets aimed at parents and teachers, to provide additional advice and information on popular topics we often get asked about. This section includes useful resources and ideas on how to support a child or young person with special needs at school, at home and in other relevant community environments from an occupational therapy perspective.

The occupational therapy team at the Royal Free London has compiled a comprehensive book of strategies and useful resources for teachers and schools to help support students with special needs. This book is called OT Tools and can be ordered from our manager, Betty Hutchon, via email request to: The book costs £25, including delivery within Camden borough.

Resources on the following areas coming soon:

  • Occupational therapy equipment for schools
  • Using digital assistive technology in schools
