MY APPROACH

An Innovative & Unique Approach To Occupational Therapy

The main benefits of "real life" therapy:

  • We can work on the challenges you and your child are facing in their “real world” within the actual context.

  • You and your child feel most comfortable, relaxed and safe in your natural, familiar environment, and this positively impacts and speeds up their progress and learning. I could come to your home “once” or see you in a clinic for months.

  • Instead of having limited access to expensive equipment ONLY during a therapy session, I teach you to use what you already own or have access to 24/7 (e.g. your furniture, toys, backyard, playground) to achieve your goals.

  • We can include other family members, and relevant members of your child’s community, e.g. both parents, siblings, grandparents, babysitter/nanny, Behavioural Interventionist, ECE, teachers, and show them strategies to set your child up for success in their context and environment.

  • Appointments can take place at convenient times for your family (e.g. virtually during your lunch break) and can be integrated into your natural daily tasks and routines (e.g. cooking, transitioning from play to mealtimes).

Who can benefit from this kind of approach?

  • Children with social anxiety
  • Children with sensory processing challenges and sensory regulation difficulties
  • Children who lack social skills
  • Children who struggle at daycare/preschool/school
  • Children who need support with developing independent life skills at home (e.g. dressing, brushing teeth, toilet training, independent feeding)
  • Children with feeding difficulties, etc.
