Our Credentials

Tree Tops believes in children reaching their maximum potential. Therefore all our therapy staff maintain and upgrade their clinical skills by participating and attending regular courses to ensure our practice is one of the best.

Between our dedicated team, we have over 50 years of experience in the field of paediatrics working with schools, NHS and treating children within our sensory integration (SI) clinic.

Our qualified Occupational Therapists are State Registered and have undergone Post Graduate Sensory Integration (SI) training either through Liverpool or Ulster Universities to accredited levels through SI Network UK, Levels 1 and 2.  New staff are encouraged and supported to undertake SI training to develop a solid theoretical and practical knowledge needed to analyse and treat children.  We also have a staff member trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding.

All our therapy staff regularly attend extensive in-house and external training events to continue their professional development to the standards of the Royal College of Occupational Therapy.  This encompasses many aspects of sensory processing difficulties and various conditions of:-

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD)
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Down Syndrome
  • Sensory Processing Disorders

Courses from:-

  • Sensory Processing
  • Listening With The Whole Body
  • Handwriting Without Tears
  • The Alert Programme
  • SPD And Feeding Difficulties
  • Sequential Oral Sensory Approach To Feeding
  • Neuroscience
  • Visual Perception

Our in-depth clinical "hands on" skills and knowledge of effective researched interventions with children ensure we can confidently offer programmes and advice to schools, parents and other professionals that will have a positive impact on the child's functioning.

All of our staff have police clearance to work with children and Tree Tops has professional indemnity/insurance

“Our primary goal as Occupational Therapists is to enable the child to do things that will enhance their ability to participate, or modify the environment to better support participation”.  (World Federation of Occupational Therapists).

Client Testimonials - Tree Tops Clinic

"Through structure and pushing the boundaries each week we saw a huge change in our son’s relationships with adults and other children. Asking our son about the experience he will tell you that he loves attending Tree Tops because it’s fun and exciting and he can wrestle with the bear in Reception."
