Frequently Asked Questions


I thought Occupational Therapy was all about work? 


The occupation in occupational therapy refers to the tasks or activities that a person has to, wants to or needs to do in their day.  Children’s occupations include growing and developing, learning, playing, moving, eating, sleeping and so on. 

Does my child need a “diagnosis”?

  No.  Occupational therapy focuses on activities that a person is having difficulty performing (such as printing) and helps the person achieve success in performing that activity.   Diagnostic information may be helpful as it may lead to the use of certain interventions which have been proven successful with people with a similar diagnosis

How do I start?  I’m still not sure.  


Please call or email Dinah.  She can set up a telephone consult or meeting to discuss your situation.

Do I need a doctor’s referral?

  Not necessarily.  Some supplementary health insurances may require a physician’s referral for reimbursement.
