Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists empower people of all ages to address physical and mental limitations. so they can do more and live better each day. Our therapists evaluate strengths and difficulties in fine motor, visual motor, coordination, self care, sensory integration and mental health. They will design interventions that will help you achieve tasks that are essential daily life. Occupational Therapists are registered by the Alberta College of Occupational Therapists (AC.OT) and members of the Society of Alberta Occupational Therapists.

Skills of an Occupational Therapist

Khan’s Occupational Therapists (OTs) regard each person as unique, and we create personalized treatment plans for home, school, work, and community to bring out a person’s strengths and encourage development in challenging areas.

Our team of Pediatric Occupational Therapists are highly personable and engaging. When learning is fun then a person’s attention, focus, planning, organization and regulation skills function better. We provide in-clinic, in-school and virtual intervention and consultations for children, infants, toddlers & adolescents in person or remotely.

Occupational therapists focus on enabling infants, children and youths to perform their daily activities and tasks as independently as possible. These activities can include anything from writing and grasping (Fine Motor skills) to playing and walking (gross motor) to feeding and dressing (Self-Care skills). OT's can also assist with attention and focus, visual perception and sensory needs such as sensitivity to light, touch or smell.
