Occupational Therapy

Butterflies Holistic Occupational Therapy works with families and schools across Yorkshire to enable children to build on their independent skills, to ensure they meet their full potential.

We support children and young people with difficulties around accessing the school curriculum and independent living skills such as feeding, sleeping, toileting, dressing and handwriting.

We provide specialist assessment and intervention for any sensory and/or neurological difficulties using evidence based research to provide appropriate, holistic and realistic intervention.
