Our Certified Occupational and Physiotherapist consult with each student’s family to identify goals and strategies to meet individual needs in everyday life at home, school and within the community. The aim of therapy is to develop “occupations” of self-care, work, and play/leisure activities to increase independence, enhance development, and prevent disability. The therapies can help kids with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. Through this therapy, fine motor skills are developed for children to grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills. We work on hand-eye coordination to improve child’s play and school skills (hitting a target, batting a ball, copying from a blackboard, etc.) Kids with severe developmental delays learn basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves) .Kids with behavioural disorders maintains positive behaviours in all environments. Children with sensory processing disorders, birth or brain injuries, autism, learning disorders, developmental delays, Cerebral Palsy and other Chronic illnesses will benefit from this therapy.
Physiotherapy helps with the development, rehabilitation and improvement of movement skills and performance. The role of the physiotherapist is to assess and manage children with movement disorder, disability or illness. The aim of a physiotherapist is to help the child reach their full potential through providing physical intervention, advice and support.
Physiotherapist may work on gross motor skills such as sitting, standing and walking; as well as improvement in flexibility, strength and endurance. Physiotherapist use exercises to help children gain and keep the best possible use of their bodies. They also try to improve the breathing and prevent in the development of deformities.
