Occupational Therapy

OT Treatment Sessions

We understand that no two families are alike, so we aim to tailor your child’s services to suit your family’s needs.

Clinic-based OT sessions include:

  • 45-minute clinical hour of direct treatment
  • 10 minutes of consultation with the parent for follow-up and to provide ideas/strategies to try at home
  • 5 minutes of documentation – this is an essential part of the treatment process so the therapist can keep track of your child’s progress and plan for the following sessions.

Goals and priorities for treatment are developed in collaboration with your family based on your family’s identified areas of concern and need. We aim to develop realistic, attainable goals that will make a real impact in the life of your child and family.

At Little Buddies, providing a family-centred service is our top priority. Goals will be reviewed and evaluated in collaboration with your family throughout the treatment process to ensure that goals are relevant and reflect your child’s current needs. Our goal is to see progress and growth through our services.

School Visits

Collaborating and communicating with your child’s school or daycare team is essential to understanding and addressing your child’s individual needs in their learning environment. The transition to a school or daycare environment can be challenging for some children, presenting new sensory experiences and changes to familiar routines, environments, and people.

Occupational therapists can work together with your child’s teachers and other school team members, including school psychologists, special educational assistants (SEAs), resource teachers and principals, to develop strategies that can be implemented in the classroom setting to help support your child to fully participate in all the experiences the school has to offer.
