NEWS: Over the past few months, we have all seen the impact of the COVID-19 virus. Kids OT Calgary is working diligently to take appropriate measures for the safety and health of all clients. Kids OT Calgary has been offering teletherapy/videoconference sessions (approximately 30 sessions per week)! Teletherapy is an approved form of therapy by Alberta College of Occupational Therapists (ACOT) and many health insurance plans cover the costs of these services. Kids OT Calgary can share many fine motor and sensory motor strategies to help everyone cope at home and obtain balance. Kids OT Calgary can provide direct occupational therapy with children including assessment and treatment. Kids OT Calgary will continue to provide ongoing intervention through Teletherapy for current clients and is accepting new clients.
