As a paediatric occupational therapist Louise has over 11 years’ experience working with disabled children, taking a holistic and client-centred approach to maximise independence and function.
Focusing on cases requiring complex care, Louise has developed specialist skills working with children who have complex physical and learning disabilities such as brain injuries, neurodevelopmental disorders, genetic conditions, sensory processing, behavioural difficulties and birth defects. With a particular interest in palliative care Louise has a wealth of knowledge working with children with life-limiting conditions.
Louise has extensive experience recommending both minor and major adaptations that have a lasting positive effect on her clients’ daily lives. She has also worked alongside local housing associations to build adapted, future-proofed homes. Louise has completed the module one training of the Ayres Sensory Integration and works with children who have experienced early years trauma to provide both sensory strategies and therapeutic play to assist the healing process.
Louise prides herself on her communication skills and clients she has worked with can attest to her warm, empathetic and approachable nature, which offers comfort and relief under the most difficult of circumstances.
