Occupational Therapy


About Us

The Occupational Therapy Department offers a variety of assessment and short-term treatment services for children aged 0 to 18 years. During the assessment, the occupational therapist will evaluate the child's ability to perform a variety of activities, typically expected of a child his or her age, including feeding, hygiene, play and leisure, motor development and school-related activities. Our occupational therapists work closely with the family and the interdisciplinary team to help each child reach his or her maximum functional potential and maximize occupational performance.
