Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is concerned with the retraining and re-education of the child. The child is trained in the skills by first analyzing the particular skill as it relates to the development of the child and working on the particular area where the child needs support. The occupational therapist makes individual and specialized equipment so that the child can sit, play, communicate, etc. This service is provided by a rehabilitation assistant, a multi-disciplinary worker trained to provide basic interventions in physiotherapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy. Again, when available, a part-time professional VSO is assigned to the unit.
