Occupational Therapy: what to expect

The initial assessment will be a discussion of your concerns and your child’s history. This is a time to share information about your child’s, physical, sensory, cognitive, communication and social development. From there we will make recommendations depending on the identified needs.

We can:

  • Develop an individual treatment plan for clients, identifying specific goals and the types of activities that will be used to help the client work toward those goals
  • We can recommend and show clients how to use appropriate adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs and eating aids, allowing them to function more independently.
  • Demonstrate exercises to improve movement and motor skills
  • Evaluate a client’s home or school and, on the basis of the client’s health needs, identify potential improvements
  • Help a client’s family accommodate and care for the client
  • Support with access to statutory services and benefits, we can review the clients/families statutory benefits to ensure that they are receiving the correct benefits.
  • Assess and record clients’ activities and progress for client evaluations and for reporting to physicians and other healthcare providers
