Occupational

Therapy

Occupational therapy enables people to participate in activities they find meaningful. These activities include taking care of oneself (and others), working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events.

Occupational therapists (OTs) prescribe devices to help you do the activities you want and need to do. They will make sure you can use the device in the best way to meet your needs.

Is your child experiencing any of the following?

  • Coordination issues

  • Inability to stay focussed and having issues with concentration

  • Needing assistance with fine motor skills, e.g. handwriting, holding scissors

  • Needing assistance with gross motor skills, e.g. poor muscle control and coordination

  • Not able to self-care, e.g. independent toileting, self-feeding

  • Sensory processing difficulties, e.g. movement, sight, touch, smell, taste

  • Excessive activity or movement

 

If your child is experiencing any of the above, this may lead to challenges with day-to-day activities at home, school, or in the community. Our Occupational Therapist will take into consideration the individual needs of your child and work in a family-centred way.
