Occupational Therapist

Luke Dixon is a newly qualified Occupational Therapist who is passionate about working with children and young people.

During the last five years Luke has worked at an American summer camp, an orphanage in Nepal, as well as some volunteering in his local community. As part of this he ran games and learned how to facilitate learning for children from 8-15. During the pandemic and during the holidays from university, Luke worked as a carer, learning valuable care skills and increasing his understanding of the differing needs that people have.

As part of his training to be an Occupational Therapist, Luke worked with a community children’s integrated therapy team, with a wide variety of children and young people of different ages and needs. Luke has also conducted research into interventions for people in the d/Deaf communities, gaining some understanding of what they need to flourish and where Occupational Therapy can help in their everyday lives. Luke is also a member of RCOT’s Children, Young People, and Families (CYPF) specialist group.

Luke has a strong drive to learn and see how he can use technology to benefit people into their future.
