Our Occupational Therapists (OTs) aim to help you and your child with their daily “occupations”. This includes all the things we do to take care of ourselves, to work and to play. For children, learning and school is their work, and play is their main occupation.
For us, it’s about understanding your child’s world, and how to best bring out their talents, so that they can live well, and do the things they love to do with confidence. We believe that you and your child can move mountains. We are here to help show you how!
Our therapists have experience working with children of all abilities. This includes, but is not limited to, children diagnosed with:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Developmental Coordination Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia and Dysgraphia
- Down Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Anxiety Disorder
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Traumatic brain Injuries
- Developmental Delay
- Executive Function
Your child does not need to have a diagnosis to benefit from our services. Many children need a little bit of extra support to be able to do the things they love or need to do. Therapy goals are determined with you as a family and are designed to meet 3 quality of life priorities: increased social participation, self-regulation and self-esteem. We will partner with you in addressing day-to-day challenges and often arrange consultations with other members of your child’s care team to help develop strategies for daily functioning at home, at school, and in the community.
