At Mosaic Children's Therapy Centre, based in Cheshire, we provide occupational, speech-language, social/emotional/behavioural and play therapy services for children and young people with additional needs. We provide support for children with a range of difficulties. These include sensory processing disorder, autism spectrum disorder, developmental coordination disorder, attention deficit disorder, emotional and behavioural problems, speech/language/communication difficulties, and many other challenges faced by children and young people.
As an interdisciplinary team, we aim to serve children and their families. A variety of therapy options are available to promote choice and flexibility. We can work individually as therapists, or collaboratively as a team to enable children to reach their goals in the areas of functional daily activity, speech, language and communication, social skills, and emotional well-being.
Mosaic Children's Therapy Centre provides parents with an alternative to the NHS. We can also work in cooperation with the NHS if this is advantageous to the client. Clients can self-refer and will receive a prompt appointment."

Occupational Therapists (OT's) work with people of all ages to help them to maintain or develop their potential with functional skills or occupations. This could be for a stroke victim to re-learn the skills of getting dressed, to helping a person with a mental illness to be able to do the weekly shop. OT's will assess a client to determine the root cause of the difficulty and use a graded purposeful activity approach to help them improve the skill.
Paediatric Occupational Therapists work specifically with children who find daily age appropriate occupations difficult. Take the complicated task of handwriting for example. A child needs to have sufficient postural stability, hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, control of muscles in the hand and upper limb, control of the pressure required on the paper, the list goes on. By using the core skills of assessment and activity analysis an OT can work out which area a child is struggling with and provide specific activities.
