Occupational Therapy

Pediatrics

The occupational therapist working in pediatrics is there to support your child in his daily activities by optimizing functional autonomy and playtime.

Why consult an occupational therapist?

  • Difficulties that interfere with the normal development and autonomy of your child
  • Motor developmental delays
  • Developmental coordination disorder (Dyspraxia)
  • Attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
  • Problem with writing
  • Any diagnosis causing a motor development problem
  • Hypotonia
  • A concerned parent with questions regarding child development

The occupational therapist will help your child overcome many challenges related to:

  • Gross motor development (difficulty walking or running, playing with a ball, ride his bike and coordination)
  • Fine motor skills (difficulty writing, cutting, tie his shoes, button a shirt or using utensils)
  • Perceptual-cognitive learning (difficulty with concepts of forms and sizes)
  • Sensory integration (avoiding or looking for sounds, odours, movements or textures)
  • Autonomy and organization (dressing up or any routine related to activities of daily living)
  • School requirements

Our evaluations take place in our adapted clinical setting or your home setting and consists of:

  • A telephone discussion
  • Sending of questionnaires to be filled by the parent
  • One or several visits with the child and parent
  • An evaluation report and recommendations (to be introduced in the child’s daily routine)
  • Meeting with parents to give an explain the evaluation report

The occupational therapist may suggest a treatment plan for occupational therapy. Thereafter, the occupational therapist and you will be able to develop the goals according to your priorities, in order to ensure the effectiveness of the treatments so that your child can meet his daily challenges.
