The Company:

My clients are a Husband and Wife Founded, Private Children's Occupational Therapy Service.

They utilise Sensory Integration and Sensory Attachment Intervention approaches within their Occupational Therapy sessions to support children and families.

They believe that it is not only important for children to master the skills they need to perform in home, school, and leisure occupations but that they should experience enjoyment whilst participating in such activities.

They have a specialist therapy studio in Horsham West Sussex comprising two rooms.

A child has exclusive use of the therapy room for the duration of their session.

The Role:

I am looking for an Occupational Therapist with post-graduate training in Sensory Integration to join their growing team.

The position is based at their new studio in Horsham which comprises staff office and kitchen, 2 specialist sensory integration rooms (and a 3rd in development), family/meeting room and messy play kitchen.

They provide therapy for clients between the ages of 0 and 16; the current caseload is mostly age 12 and under.

A high proportion of their families have a child with a sensory processing difficulties, ASD, ADHD, PDA, Genetic Disorders, Down Syndrome, Dyspraxia/DCD, or Early Developmental Trauma.

Children do not require a diagnosis to receive support from their team, support is based on need.

A therapist joining the team will be self-motived, have a problem solving approach to working and be able to work well as part of a team.

They will value each unique family unit and understand that a key part of a therapist's role is to maximise on a family's strengths and wealth of knowledge to facilitate them to support their child.

The role will be tailored to you to maximise on the skills you bring to the team and where you see your career heading.
