Occupational Therapy

When? For who?
For what?

The occupational therapist intervenes when daily activities become a challenge for the individual, struggling with one or more deficits. The occupational therapist’s main goal is to help the child regain their independence and reintegrate into their day-to-day activities. Unlike the physiotherapist or the osteopath, who treats localized injuries in one or the other of the affected systems, the occupational therapist is interested in the impact of the deficit on the young person’s daily functioning, in one occupational sphere, be it social, personal, academic, etc.

    of each child.
  • The occupational therapist helps your child evolve and build confidence
    through encouragement and positive reinforcement.
  • The work done in occupational therapy allows the child to better integrate
    into the community by developing their social skills, and
    facilitating their play and leisure.
  • The occupational therapist also aims to help the child acquire better
    autonomy in their daily life (feeding, dressing,
    using the bathroom…).
  • The occupational therapist also advises on the use educational tools
    (computer, visual aids, etc.), to ensure that the child is
