“Sarah and Susanna were great all the way through Ruby’s assessment and treatment. Now we know the root of her issues and how best to deal with her needs at school and in everyday life. This has been really helpful for ALL of us – I can’t thank you enough.” T.B.  Gateshead

Enable Therapy

Enable is a unique partnership of Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy (PT) working collaboratively providing assessment, treatment and contributing to diagnosis of babies, children and adults with sensory processing difficulties affecting motor skills e.g. Dyspraxia, Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD), Learning Difficulties (LD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

We are a small practice based in the NE of England with a combination of 50 years experience between the two of us. We always do our assessments and write up our reports together as this ensures thorough observation and documentation during assessment. It also means we gather a full picture of the client’s strengths and difficulties from both an OT and PT perspective.

This collaborative assessment can be taken to a medical practitioner to contribute to diagnosis.


In order for children to play, learn and interact with other children and their environment, sensory integration can be key.


These can be as varied as clumsiness, poor gross motor skills or a delay in reaching milestones, to name a few. See the full range in this section.


We have a wide range of services available to you and will work with flexibility at all times, to meet the needs of you or your child.


Enable also offer a range of additional services which utilise our expertise in this area and complement our core range of services perfectly.
