International Occupational Therapy
All children should have the chance to participate fully in school and in life. For many different reasons this can be a struggle. Occupational therapy benefits children who struggle with developmental milestones and emotional well-being. Therapeutic support can have a great impact on your child’s ability to reach their potential academically and socially.
We provide occupational therapy on-site or off-site (at our office or in school). Our occupational therapists offer direct support to your child, while collaborating with teachers and parents to make sure that gains made in one area transfer to the next. Occupational therapists work as part of the Linden Global Learning team of specialists (psychologists, academic coaches, learning specialists) to ensure the availability of a breadth of resources for tailoring an optimal program of support.
During individual occupational therapy sessions, a child will participate in activities focused on meeting their individual goals. Activities center on play and include the "just right challenge” — a therapy tool that empowers children by giving them the chance to experience a sense of improvement, or achievement, within their own abilities.
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 teachers implement accommodations or special strategies at school through regular consultations and school visits, as needed.
Occupational Therapy Sessions
Each hour of occupational therapy includes 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.
