Occupational therapy available for disabled kids
The Quebec Society for Disabled Children (QSDC) has added occupational therapy to its list of services available to children in the Montreal community.
Children as young as six months old will have access to one-on-one or group therapy sessions, which will focus on helping with cognitive, fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing, visual perception, activities of daily life and independence.
“There are long waiting lists for children with special needs due to high demand for early intervention,” explains Jennifer Hargadon, occupational therapist at the organization. “Some children wait for years before they can begin treatment and, as research has shown, early intervention can significantly impact the lives of these children.”
Since 1930, the society has supported the development of children with various neurological, intellectual and physical disabilities.
The occupational therapy sessions will take place at 2300 René-Lévesque Blvd W. Financial assistance is available to families and receipts are provided.
Families can sign up by calling 514-937-6171 ext. 236 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
