About the Clinic
The primary focus of Occupational Therapy (OT) at SickKids is the assessment and treatment of acute events resulting in changes of function. However there may be cases in which OT is involved with your child’s care on an outpatient/ ongoing basis. These specialized services may not otherwise be available in the community.
Take the elevators near Shopper’s Drug Mart (Black Wing) down to the S level. Once out of the elevators there is a sign on the wall that points to the Rehabilitation Department. The department’s room number is S229 in the Burton Wing.
What to Expect During Your Visit
Consultation in clinics
OT may be available for consultation though specialized clinics. You may inquire about an OT consult with your health care team (Doctor, Nurse Practitioner). Consultation may include assessment of needs, initiation of treatment and referrals to community providers.
Assessment and treatment in Rehabilitation Department
You may be referred by your family doctor/ pediatrician for an OT assessment. The common reasons for assessment or treatment include feeding/ swallowing concerns, fine motor/ developmental concerns, scar management, sensory motor dysfunction or changes in cognition/ behavior following a previous traumatic injury or event. Ongoing outpatient treatment at SickKids is limited, however certain programs may provide these services.
