Occupational Therapy

For Students Wanting to Become More Independent

Program Description

Individualized consultations based on the needs and priorities of families and clients.

Many individuals with Down syndrome benefit from receiving individualized services and support from our registered occupational therapists. These supports can focus on maximizing independence with many meaningful daily activities, including self-care activities (eating, dressing, toileting, etc.), independent living skills (cooking, chores), play/recreational/leisure activities, and school activities or readiness skills (crafting, printing, keyboarding, attention and organizational skills, etc.).

Occupational Therapy sessions are individualized and based on family/students’ needs and priorities. Sessions can be a consult with the parent(s) only, with student and parent, or with a school aide or teacher.
