Occupational Therapists understand the impact of disability, illness and impairments in everyday life. Occupational Therapists help children develop, recover, and maintain activities of daily living and play skills. The desired outcome of therapy is to help children learn and achieve independence in play and in their general daily activities. All children are assessed individually and their goals will be targeted to meet their needs.
Occupational Therapists develop and implement interventions to help the child respond appropriately to information coming through the senses. Interventions may include developmental activities, sensory integration or sensory processing and play activities.
Occupational Therapists identify, develop and adapt and encourage meaningful activities that enhance the child’s quality of life.
