Rosalind is a dedicated and enthusiastic occupational therapist (OT) with expertise in sensory integration. She delivers highly specialist treatment, training and consultation. Over the past 15 years Rosalind has specialised in providing occupational therapy for children and young people with complex needs, working closely with their parents/carer’s. Her personality is kind and caring, with a high level of empathy. She has often been told that she has a calm and professional approach to her work. This approach is essential for providing treatment for clients and families with complex needs. Rosalind has recently set up an occupational therapy service at two special schools in Manchester which previously did not have an OT service of this kind. The feedback from the head teachers at these schools has been extremely positive; “We are extremely impressed with the OT (Roz) at our school, the input has been transformational” (Head Teacher at Piper Hill).

Rosalind had received numerous positive comments from parents, carers and professionals regarding her quality of work with the children and young people. The outcomes of the sessions have improved the quality of life for the individuals and the family as a whole. The assistant head,at the Birches Specialist School stated “The effects your treatment has on x is fantastic, he is like a different child when he comes back to the classroom, he is calmer, and more focussed, and it really is amazing!”

Rosalind has also completed whole school training for 50 + staff, small groups and led parent/carers workshops, receiving positive feedback, “staff were buzzing after your training this morning they are so enthusiastic about it” (Assistant Head at Piper Hill). She has recently started a sensory clinic for parents/carers which involves an initial training workshop and then offering up to 3 1:1 clinic appointments for 45 minutes with the parents/carers to discuss and problem solve the sensory processing difficulties their child is experiencing. A parent has recently fed back stating “Roz has been fantastic. She has given great advice and support”
