Occupational Therapy

for Children

What Is Occupational Therapy for Children?

Occupational therapy helps children develop the life skills they need to reach developmental milestones and improve their quality of life. Because children experience new challenges and learning opportunities, and are transitioning through life at such a fast pace, occupational therapy enables children to explore the world through meaningful play and interactions.

 

Why True Therapy

At True Therapy Group, we offer evidence-based, client-centred care that caters to the need and situation of individual families. Serving the Durham Region, GTA and surrounding areas, our occupational therapists are skilled at building mutual trust and understanding with our clients. We are passionate in partnering with caregivers, parents, children, educators, and/or other professionals to identify innovative solutions and create lasting impact.

Child playing with sensory bin

Children with SPD have difficulties receiving and responding to information through the senses (e.g. sound, touch, movement). This directly impacts a child’s ability to engage in daily activities in their environments. An OT can provide strategies which will help your child participate in daily activities.

Child eating
FEEDING

Learn More

Picky eating is when a child prefers the same food over trying new foods. Food can be refused due to a number of reasons (texture, temperature, consistency, smell, etc.). An OT can help your child learn to enjoy a variety of healthy foods to support their growing bodies and participate in activities.
