Children's Occupational Therapy: Early Intervention Services - Castlegar and Trail Areas

“Occupations” refer to anything a person does during their day-to-day life. For young children, occupations generally include:

  • Self-care (toileting, eating, sleeping, bathing, grooming)
  • Work (fine motor skills (e.g. drawing shapes, using scissors), attending to activities preschool, transitioning between tasks)
  • Play (using toys, interacting with peers, recreational activities)

To help enable a child to fully participate in their daily activities, the Occupational Therapist may look at some of the following:

  • Development of new skills, e.g. fine motor, play
  • Which materials are used for a task, e.g. modified scissors
  • How the task is being done, e.g. breaking it into smaller steps
  • Environmental factors, e.g. decreasing noise

Referrals may come from a parent or a professional working with the family and child (with parent's permission).

The website includes a referral form, detailed information about the program as well as the COVID-19 Plan for in-person appointments.
