Kindergarten Readiness

Research shows that the skills and knowledge children have entering school are predictive of later achievement. As a result, Kinex Occupational Therapy offers an elite, innovative program aimed at improving children’s academic success and acceleration. This early intervention program is an intensive, integrated, program for children aged two to five. Emphasis is on achieving developmentally appropriate fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and visual motor skills.

Prewriting & Handwriting

When children experience difficulty with printing, their overall school performance can be affected. Statically, problems with handwriting are the most common reason children are referred to occupational therapy. At Kinex, we teach children pre-writing and handwriting skills using evidence based, easy to learn techniques.

Sensory Processing Disorder

Behavioural, social, academic, or motor coordination concerns are often cited when a child is suspected of having Sensory Processing Disorder. The occupational therapists at Kinex will evaluate your child to determine if a sensory processing problem is present. The therapist will then develop interventions focused on improving the way the brain processes and responds to sensory information. Programs can be developed for the child, school, daycare or home.

Kinex therapists work closely with clients, architects, and contractors to develop accessible environments.
