We’re hoping you can help us. We’d like to ask you to tell us about your experiences of the support some of the people who are asked to help you have given you. These helpers are often called therapists and there are several different types of therapists. Two of the types you might have had help from are Occupational Therapists, (OTs) and Speech and Language Therapists (SALTs).
Occupational Therapists. Do you understand what they do? Here’s ways they can help you:
- Sometimes they might give you equipment to help you with tasks.
- They might give you some activities to help to calm you down or help you feel ok about yourself.
- Change the things around you to make things easier for you for example, putting a ramp in for a wheelchair user.
- They might work with you on your own.
- They run groups you might want to join in with.
Speech and Language Therapists. Do you understand what they do? Here’s ways they can help you:
- They might work with you, your family or carers and offer advice or training.
- They can help people with the way the think and support them to learn ways of communicating.
- They will usually see people for meeting and watch to find out how they might be able to help.
- They can help you communicate by using photos, symbols, or objects so that you can tell people want you want and how you think and feel.
