How does the process work?
  • Firstly, an assessment will be completed to establish the child’s strengths and weaknesses and to identify possible problem areas. The assessment usually takes 2 hours. (Sometimes assessments are done over two or more sessions)
  • After the assessment, a feedback session will be scheduled to discuss the assessment findings.
  • Occupational therapy sessions will be recommended based on the problem areas identified in the assessment process. Occupational therapy sessions are once or twice a week. The length of therapy sessions varies from 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Occupational therapy is made fun and interesting. Age-appropriate activities are used to meet the child's need.
