Occupational Therapy

We currently have immediate availability for daytime sessions! Request a consultation with our team below.

Kinark Autism Services offers individual Occupational Therapy (OT) assessment and treatment sessions to families of children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

These sessions provide support with concerns related to self-care, productivity and leisure. Occupational Therapy can also support sensory processing, sleep, selective eating, and emotion regulation concerns to enhance overall quality of life. Sessions can be provided in-person within a clinic setting or virtually (if appropriate). In person service is currently offered out of our Markham office in York Region.

Our Occupational Therapist will collaborate with you to identify goals and develop an individualized, evidence-based treatment plan based on OT strategies through:

  • Direct intervention with the child/youth to develop skills related to the identified goals
  • Providing adaptations to tasks with equipment/technology recommendations if appropriate
  • Consultation with parents and caregivers to help them support their child at home
  • Collaboration with community partners (i.e., schools, daycare staff, or other professionals) to promote consistency and success with activities across environments

Goals may include, but are not limited to:

  • Enhancing engagement with daily activities (toothbrushing, bathing, toileting, dressing, etc.)
  • Improving pencil grasp and printing proficiency
  • Enhancing awareness and skills related to emotion regulation
  • Improving sleep hygiene and quality of sleep
  • Expanding the variety of foods your child will eat
  • Supporting the development of play and social skills
  • Supporting sensory processing and/or overload 

Following an initial assessment with an Occupational Therapist, goals are collaboratively developed during a feedback session to explain assessment findings and share evidence-based treatment recommendations and support planning.
