Occupational Therapy in Calgary
Occupational therapy specializes in helping you achieve the things in life that you need or want to do, but in a way that will fit specifically for you.
Our OT (occupational therapist) will look at you as a person, as well as your environment, to determine the barriers keeping you from accomplishing what you need or want. They find solutions, create adaptations or change the approach of the task. OT’s typically look at the family system and find ways for each member to support one another, as well as build an understanding of the solutions that are created.
As a team, we value a multidisciplinary approach, including working with family physicians, psychiatrists and other specialists to make sure our clients have as much support as possible. Offering occupational therapy enables us to provide you with a whole-person perspective to becoming the best version of yourself.
Here are some examples of the physical issues that an OT can typically support:
- Daily routine
- Explosive emotions
- Sensory issues
- Equipment struggles
While this is not a complete list, it certainly captures a small portion of how an OT can help. OTs and psychologists work well together considering the focus of each profession complements one another nicely, and provides a holistic approach.
