What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. Occupation refers to everything that people do during the course of everyday life. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the occupations which give meaning and purpose to their lives. Occupational therapists may assume different roles such as advising on health risks in the workplace, safe driving for older adults, and programs to promote mental health for youth.
An occupational therapist is a University graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited occupational therapy program, recognized and ascribed by L’Ordre professionnel des ergothérapeutes du Quebec , allowing them to practice occupational therapy in the Province.
Our Occupational Therapy services include:
• Driving Assessments
At Cappino we offer Occupational Therapy and Psychology services, which can be combined with the NeuroTracker training in order to influence positively day to day skills like time management, planning, organization, memory, awareness and decision-making, which can be a struggle for those with an attention deficit.
It is important to know that attention is trainable, and the NeuroTracker focuses on enhancing attention by using scientifically validated training methods to improve mental performance in the ways that matter the most for people with ADHD.
