Thank you for your blog entries. They help.
I live in eastbourne and the waiting list to see an OT is 2 years. I have complained and am curently pestering our MP into making some noises. You have reminded me to mail him again. I truely believe the key lies in undertsiang the sensory side of things more. I really hope you have a good appointment. Let us all know how it goes.
Thanks, Zoe. A two year wait puts things in perspective for sure. I hate the inconsistency across boroughs and the necessity of having to shout loudly to get what your child needs. Good luck with everything, I wish you well.
The OT service in our area won’t even see a child for sensory issues. After a sensory profile of my daughter (13years and only just diagnosed) by camhs we were told she has sensory processing difficulties and could possibly be benefit from sensory integration therapy but not available on the NHS and nearest private provider is an hour and a half drive away and charge £70 per hour! My daughter did see the NHS OT for motor skills problems where she was assessed as in the severest category but she’s too old for any input from their services!!
I think it’s outrageous that a child who is diagnosed and been told they have difficulties cannot get help for those difficulties. Please contact your MP. I am not saying it will make a difference for you but if enough of us make a fuss ….? I am optomistic by nature!! Good luck
