Answers to the most frequently asked question on Pediatric Occupational Therapy

The goal of an occupational therapist who works with children is to enable them to be able to participate and function in their daily activities such as school, daycare, play and leisure.

Did you know that many parents have the same questions?

Here are some answers.

  • That your child does not need a diagnosis to see an occupational therapist
  • That we can work with babies and adolescent and every age in between
  • That we offer school, daycare and home visits
  • That an occupational therapist can work fine and gross motor difficulties/delays, sensory integration and much more
  • That if your child struggles with handwriting, an occupational therapist can help
  • That we can provide recommendations for home and school
  • That we work with picky eaters
  • That you can consult an occupational therapist, but that this doesn’t automatically mean that treatment sessions are necessary
  • That we can help adapt a child to difficult and unexpected situations (emotional regulation)
