Does your child experience challenges with their participation with daily activities including self-care, productivity, or leisure activities?
Do they need support to reach developmental milestones and engage in age-appropriate activities?
The Pediatric OT can help!
The pediatric occupational therapist can assess skills and functional abilities in order to identify a child’s strengths and weaknesses. Through a collaborative approach with the family, they can then determine an intervention plan accordingly considering the child and family’s goals and needs in order to provide support in finding the just right challenge to promote learning and achievements.
· Self-care: getting dressed (buttons, tying shoelaces, etc.), feeding (picky eating, tolerating a variety of food/textures), mobility, sleeping, showering, grooming, and much more
· Productivity: playing skills, going to school and completing schoolwork (considering factors such as organizational skills, handwriting, manipulation of tools (pen/pencil, scissors, glue), attention, postural stability, mobility at school, etc.)
· Leisure: learning play skills, participation in sports and social activities, among many more.
As occupational therapists, we complete comprehensive assessments - considering postural and sensory factors, behaviour, environment, as well as oral motor, gross and fine motor skills, etc. - individualized according to suspected challenges.
