Occupational Therapists (OTs) provide services for children and youth (from birth to 19 years) to improve their ability to function and participate in everyday activities.
Occupational Therapy services may involve:
Intervention focuses on skill development as well as on creating environments that promote best functioning. Intervention occurs with collaboration with the family and the whole service team.
OT services may involve assignment of care to an Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) to perform components of a treatment plan under supervision of the OT.
Referrals will be reviewed and services will be determined based on your child’s individual needs.
Health professionals, families and clients can complete the referral form. Completion of the referral form is required to access this service.
