Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps people across their lifespan to participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). 

 

Occupational therapy interventions  help people with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, recover from injury to regain skills or acquire new skills, and support experiential learning for those who have physical, emotional and/or cognitive challenges.

We focus on the “just right” balance of fun and challenge to create an atmosphere of accomplishment and success. Activities are chosen which have personal value to the participant developing their sense of efficacy and self direction. All activities are designed to build self-confidence, improve self-esteem, create body and sensory awareness and promote healthy self images.

 

 Therapeutic plans may address:

  • bilateral motor coordination;
  • sensory processing;
  • gross and fine motor skills;
  • play and leisure skills;
  • motor planning;
  • visual and perceptual motor skills
  • self-care skills
  • consultation for home based programs
