There are lots of ways to pay for private Occupational Therapy!
Many parents tell us, for example, that they choose to substitute private Occupational Therapy for music lessons for 1/2 a year as the best help they can get for their child. Or parents tell us that they spend more on their pet in the course of a year than they would on Occupational Therapy help for their child!
