Kate Cartwright BSc. (Hons)

I have over 20 years’ experience as a qualified Occupational Therapist both in the UK and overseas. Working largely for the NHS since qualifying in 2000, I have worked in a variety of settings in Physical, Mental health, Autism services and vocational (work) rehabilitation. In addition to my Dyspraxia UK consultancy work, I work part time as a specialist Occupational Therapist in an NHS Asperger’s Service. I provide assessment of people’s day-to-day function including issues with sensory processing, emotional regulation, dyspraxia/motor coordination difficulties and executive functioning problems. I am qualified as a Sensory Integration Practitioner and have gained over 8 years’ experience of applying Ayres Sensory Integration Therapy to practice using a specialist therapy space and mentorship. I am proficient in using a range of sensory assessments including the Sensory Integrations and Praxis Tests (SIPT) which identifies sensory based motor disorders, and the impact on function using tools such as the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS). I have advanced training in DCD/Dyspraxia assessment and interventions for adults. I enjoy applying these skills in my work to help people make the most of their lives. I also offer workplace assessments and advise HR/Occupational Health on reasonable adjustments.

 

I regularly deliver training on Autism and Sensory Processing with peer specialists to groups of professionals, carers, and people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, using my experience and specialism within the field.

 

I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as well as a member of the British Association of Occupational Therapy. I am an active member of a specialist section with the Royal College of Occupational Therapy and enjoy keeping up to date with the latest clinical evidence.
