Occupational Therapy for Indigenous Youth
Anderson Therapy Services has been collaborating and working with Indigenous/First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities across Northern Canada, Ontario and Quebec.
Are you concerned with your loved one’s fine motor skills? Are you concerned with your child’s emotional regulation? Does your child have difficulty with printing or using a computer? Are you concerned for the safety of a loved one?
Health issues, injuries, developmental delays or disabilities can impact a person’s ability to participate in daily activities. Occupational Therapists (OTs) help individuals participate in meaningful daily activities by teaching new ways of doing things, using specialized equipment, adapting new environments and tools, and providing individualized therapy to regain skills. We provide assessment and treatment for:
- Printing, handwriting and computer skills
- Safety and accessibility at home, school, and the community
- Self care skills such as dressing, eating, and bathing
- Strength and co-ordination
- Focus and attention
Our Occupational Therapists help individuals with mobility, strength, home safety, motor skills, self-regulation, accessibility and use of specialized equipment.
Our therapy services for Indigenous/First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities can be accessed in remote areas using our online videoconferencing technology as well as on-site visits. Our unique service delivery model, in partnership with communities, has helped many First Nations children and youth achieve success across various needs.
We Provide Online Occupational Therapy
Have you wondered how can Occupational Therapy work online?
An occupational therapist will be a guide, teaching you how everyday objects around your home can be used as therapy tools. Occupational therapy sessions use a combination of hands on materials and interactive digital materials to work on important skills. Our occupational therapists have been pioneers, innovating new ways to connect with clients in a meaningful way. Feel free to reach out to one of our occupational therapists to learn more about how we can provide this service from the safety and comfort of your home
