" Occupational therapists, often called OTs, are trained to understand not only the medical and physical limitations of a disability or injury, but also the psychosocial factors that affect the functioning of the whole person – their health and their wellness.”

They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability."

~Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists

Our Occupational Therapy Assessments will explore physical, cognitive, psychological, and/or social factors that contribute to challenges in your life. Together, we will develop goals to address your current challenges and help you to continue moving forward on your journey.

What is OT? 

Occupational therapists (OTs) at Symphony follow a client-centered practice to look at difficulty in day-to-day activities due to injury, illness, or disability. Together we will create a plan to help you return to everyday activity and roles.

The scope of occupational therapy is broad, and OTs treat the whole person physically, mentally, and emotionally; supporting you in your journey to live life to the fullest. We provide a wide variety of services for any age, see below and contact us to learn more.
