Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. (World Federation of Occupational Therapists, 2012)

When working with children and their families, OT's aim to promote independence, skill development and participation in daily activities that are important to the child and family network.

This may include play skills; self-care skills (sleep, dressing, eating, toileting); participation in school; attention for learning; handwriting; environmental access; social and emotional well-being; motor skill development; and adaptive/assistive equipment prescription.

What we love to do:

  • Childhood developmental milestones
  • Feeding difficulties (0-2 years)
  • Play development
  • Daily living skill building (toileting, dressing, sleeping, eating)
  • Social emotional development
  • Processing sensory input
  • School readiness skills (e.g. drawing and cutting)
  • Motor skill development (fine and gross motor skills)
  • Handwriting development
  • Attention and concentration
  • Home modifications and considerations
  • Equipment prescription and recommendations (e.g. wheelchairs)
  • Yoga and mindfulness inspired therapeutic interventions
