People experience life to the fullest through the things they enjoy doing everyday – at work, in school, in their homes, or out in their communities. Occupational therapy (OT) is a health profession that helps you or your family member develop the skills needed for day-to-day activities when these abilities are reduced or lost. Shannon uses evidence-based OT practice to help children and their families address difficulties around sensory integration, picky eating, fine motor/printing skills, self-regulation and activities of daily living (dressing, toileting, play!)
What to expect in treatment
- OT sessions will look different depending on the goals that we are working toward together, but they will always have one thing in common: PLAY!
- Children are built to naturally do their best learning through play, so therapy sessions will always be structured to be fun and engaging by using movement activities, games and engaging stories.
- Sessions are typically 50 minutes long and will generally involve the OT & child interacting throughout.
- Parents are always invited to be part of our time together where they will learn strategies to help their child at home and school.
- As each child is different, sessions can be tailored to be shorter as required.
