for children and adults 

gold background for calm therapy in Toronto

It's time to get moving.

Occupational therapy sessions are delivered by our occupational therapists who engage the child by using a variety of play-based techniques to increase the child’s ability to function more confidently and independently, or adults in more traditional ways. Occupational therapists help individuals work towards accomplishing developmental goals such as improving fine and/or gross motor skills, balance, coordination, body awareness, visual-spatial awareness, sensory processing and organization skills. 

Occupational Assessments and Therapy in Toronto

Occupational Assessments evaluate your or your child’s abilities, skills, interests, aptitudes, and needs related to daily activities – your occupations. In these assessments, we cover various aspects of your occupational functioning such as physical, emotional, cognitive and environmental. The initial consultation is focused on gathering important information about the existing concerns, medical history, current functional abilities and future goals.

Our OT assessments in Toronto include:

1. Functional Assessments 

This assessment measures your ability to perform instrumental daily-life tasks such as dressing yourself, personal grooming, bathing, feeding, housekeeping, meal preparation and use of transportation.

2. Physical Assessments

During this assessment, our Occupational Therapists focus on your physical limitations and abilities. It includes evaluating your physical strength, range of motion, body coordination, balance and overall mobility. These help us identify physical barriers that refrain you from fully participating in your occupations.

3. Sensory Assessments

This part of an Occupational Assessment relates to your sensory processing abilities. It includes focusing on your comprehension and response to various sensory inputs to identify sensory processing difficulties. For example, how you understand and react to touch, sights, sounds, taste and smells.

4. Cognitive Assessments

This involves assessing your memory, attention span, problem-solving skills and executive functioning. Our Occupational Assessment, Toronto can identify any cognitive impairments, and their severity, that impact your occupations.
