Occupational Therapy telephone advice line

children's OT telephone advice line

0121 683 2325

The Children’s Occupational Therapy advice line is available for anyone to contact to gain practical therapy advice, strategies and support in relation to a child’s functional and independence skills. 

A Senior Occupational Therapist will be available to answer queries from parents, school staff, health professionals etc. 

By providing early help and advice around Occupational Therapy issues, unnecessary referrals and wait times can be prevented. This can also be the first step in providing a family with practical strategies, before a referral needs to be made. 

The phone line will be open Monday-Friday 9am-4pm and is available to discuss children aged 0-18 years (up to 19 years if in full time special school education) and registered with a Birmingham GP.
