Helping kids of all ages to live a more active life through FUNctional movement.
Your child’s registered physiotherapist or occupational therapist might ask you if you (or your child) would be ok to work with an OTA/PTA. The therapist would explain to you that they will still be making the plans, but the OTA/PTA will be the one to follow through with the therapy session and then would report back to the therapist. But, what is an OTA/PTA and why would you choose to work with them? Here are the basics to help you better understand this role and how they can be an integral part of your child’s therapy journey.
Do you have a toddler or preschooler? Are they keen to colour, draw, or make crafts? Or maybe they struggle because they don’t have the necessary skills yet? Maybe it’s time to work on some PRE-scissor and PRE-writing skills.
