In celebration of the National Occupational Therapy Week, Cambridgeshire Children’s Occupational Therapy Service is proud to announce the launch of a new website which offers more support for parents across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The brand–new website is a perfect starting point for parents who are looking to learn new strategies when it comes to improving their child’s development and is accessible 24-hours a day.

The OT website was designed to focus on children and young adult’s progression stages rather than their age group. The four progression stages include starting point, next steps, getting there and feeling confident, and each one of the stages offers video training and resources needed to help your child to increase their independence and feel confident in undertaking any tasks at hand.

What’s more, the website has been created using ‘Recite’ software, to help enhance user experience and ensure that the audience of the website can find all the information they need quickly and easily. Thanks to Recite, those who are struggling to navigate through the website due to their disability or a language barrier can now use tools such as text to speech functionality, dyslexia software, an interactive dictionary and a translation tool with over 100 languages.

Children’s Occupational Therapy Lead, Nicola Foreman says: “It has been great working with children, young people and families who use our services to create a website which I hope will be helpful to many. The biggest impact will be that families will now have instant access to strategies and ideas to help their child at the most convenient time for them.

“As individuals, we all learn differently and by listening to the feedback from our parents, carers and young people, we have used a variety of different ways to communicate. This ranges from video clips of our children, cartoon clips and written information. All written information can be translated in many different languages. We will continue to build our website to make it the best that we can.”
