International Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy can be provided on-site or off-site (at home, in school). Not only will an occupational therapist provide direct support to your child, but will also collaborate with teachers, parents, or other supports making sure that gains made in one area transfer to the next. Occupational therapists work as part of the
Linden Global Learning team of specialists (psychologist, academic coaches, learning specialists) to ensure that they have a breadth of resources for tailoring an optimal program of support for students.
During individual occupational therapy sessions, a child will participate in activities focused on meeting his/her individual goals entered on play and the "just right challenge". Areas where occupational therapy can support include, but are not limited to:
Gross & fine motor skills
Visual motor integration & visual perceptual skills
Motor planning, sequencing, praxis
Feeding (sensitivities, picky eating) & grooming challenges
Focus & attention difficulties
Collaboration with Schools
Our occupational therapists are trained to help implement accommodations or special strategies at school through regular consultations with the teacher and school visits as needed.
Occupational Therapy Sessions
For each hour of occupational therapy the student receives a 45 minute session with the therapist and 15 minutes of school consultation. That time can be used for monthly visits to the school, or weekly correspondence, whatever would help the child and teachers most.
