Occupational Therapy at Ambroise Farm
Why do we usually deliver occupational therapy outdoors?
At Ambroise Farm we believe that time in nature makes all the difference. Research continues to reveal this missing ingredient for so many children struggling today... freedom to creatively connect, learn and grow outdoors with nature. This is the therapeutic foundation for outdoor occupational therapy at Ambroise farm; nature is our co-facilitator.
We offer comprehensive assessment and occupational therapy interventions for children aged 0-18 years. Our highly experienced occupational therapists tailor individual and group treatment approaches to include the therapeutic benefits of 'nature connection' in our beautiful yurt, grounds and woodland. We use eco materials during intervention and promote sensory-motor development and social-emotional regulation alongside environmental stewardship.
What to Expect
Our therapy sessions and groups take place primarily in 'Whimsy Wood'; our spinney of native broadleaf trees, on the edge of 5 acres of certified organic land. Our nearby pond and orchard make the area wonderfully diverse and alive with insect, bird and animal life.
Nestled within the orchard, our beautiful yurt provides a unique and nurturing indoor space for therapy.
