My practice is a multidisciplinary practice for children and their families. Our clientele ranges from neurotypical babies with sleep or feeding issues to adolescents with complex needs. We often work as a team to address family priorities whether they be preventative or rehabilitative. We are based in Grande Prairie but do travel throughout northern Alberta to serve clients.
As an OT, I have extensive experience with Autism, Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other developmental disorders. I am specially trained in feeding and fine motor issues, sensory processing and perceptual difficulties, cognitive and social skill deficits. I have followed clients well into adulthood and am very aware of the impact of their disability moving into the adult world. I have taken courses in Life Care Planning and have done medical-legal work for both plaintiff and defense.
