Griffin Occupational Therapy (GriffinOT) Sensory, Fine Motor, Handwriting, Autism
GriffinOT provides online training and resources for parents and teachers supporting children with sensory processing differences, fine motor skill delays, and poor handwriting.
GriffinOT enables children to participate and learn by equipping their parents and teachers.
We offer affordable and easily accessible online occupational therapy solutions. Our primary aim is to help school staff and parents to understand what they can do to support their children.
Our sensory training will help you to understand how sensory processing impacts children's behaviour, engagement, and skill development. It will give you the skills you need to support children to be successful.
Our handwriting and fine motor skill packages are a quick and easy solution to help children to develop these skills at home and school.

Our service provides online training that is very relevant to children with SEN. Our handwriting programme will support children who need extra help with fine motor skills and learning their letter formations efficiently. Our sensory training explores sensory processing and gives you the confidence and knowledge to know how you can support sensory needs.
What does it do?
GriffinOT offers affordable and easily accessible online occupational therapy solutions for schools and parents. This includes an online Sensory Processing Disorder training course and from mid-2019 will include online motor skill development programmes. All GriffinOT programmes offer you more than a list of activities/strategies to try. Our primary aim is to help school staff and parents to understand why they’re doing these activities or using specific strategies. Most importantly, we also discuss how to implement all activities/strategies safely and correctly. If you want to learn more about Sensory Processing Disorder, how it affects children and how to help, our online course ‘Sensory Processing: What’s the Fuss?’ could be a good solution for you. This is available for teachers and parents in an individual study format. There is also an inset format, which would be suitable for whole school training. If your child has gross or fine motor skill delays, struggles with their pencil grip or finds using scissors really tricky, then our online motor skill development programmes may be relevant. Please visit our website for further information.
Who is it for?
Parents, carers, teaching assistants and teachers of children with autism, sensory processing issues and motor skill developmental delays.
