What You Need to Know About Occupational Therapy in Calgary

Contrary to what the word implies, occupational therapy has little to do with a person’s occupation. Rather, occupational therapy is a discipline that focuses on enabling people to perform normal functions and meaningful activities that will allow them to be independent. An occupational therapist can help individuals develop and perfect fine motor skills, improve balance, strength, and flexibility, and enhance mental capacity. We work with children and adults to address physical, mental, and cognitive disorders. At Supporting Wellness, our occupational therapist focuses on sensory regulation, as well as child and adult ADHD assessments, and coaching. Our therapists in Calgary are highly trained and ready to help you on the road to a more fulfilling and independent lifestyle.

Occupational Therapy for Children

We specialize in occupational therapy for children. Working with children with learning disabilities, anxiety, and Autism, we help them to gain a greater sense of independence and confidence. Occupational therapy for children includes different focuses based on the age of the client. When it comes to infants and toddlers, we may focus on fine motor skills for grabbing toys, food, etc., bilateral hands skills, sensory processing, muscle strength, and proper eating functions. As children get older, a Calgary therapist may look at pre-handwriting and drawing skills, attention spans, visual perception and visual motor skills, physical coordination, and environmental adaptations. As we work with school-aged children, an occupational therapist will build upon these areas to ensure a child has the proper fine motor skills to use a pencil and complete proper letter formation, preparing them for cursive writing in addition to teaching them ideation strategies, sensory self-regulation skills, physical coordination and more.
