How can we help?
Occupational Therapy helps children to develop independence in the following areas:
Fine motor skills
Visual/motor skills – tracking an object, hand-eye coordination
Cognitive skills including problem-solving, memory, and attention
Play and social interaction
Learning basic self-care tasks, such as getting dressed, etc.
Our sessions are set up to be the "just right" challenge, play based, and fun. We provide specialist assessments, one-to-one therapy, and group therapy for children and their families.
Our mission at Whole Child Occupational Therapy is simple: to meet children where they're at and help to improve their lives. Occupational Therapy caters to each child's specific needs and helps to further develop their skills.

Hi, my name's Zoe and I'm a pediatric Occupational Therapist!
I combine mindfulness, yoga, and emotional awareness practices, along side my in-depth knowledge of child development, sensory integration and reflex integration, to best support the needs of the children I work with.
I also look at the many different aspects of a child's life, including their environment, culture, family, school, routines, and play. I focus on the child’s specific, individual strengths and differences, and work with families and caregivers to create interventions that work within their daily routines.

Emotional and Sensory Strategies
We sought out help from Zoe for our daughter who was experiencing frequent and intense emotional outbursts associated with sensory sensitivities. Zoe provided simple exercises and changes we could make to our routine and interactions to prevent emotional outbursts. We learned by being attentive to our daughter's sensory diet and identifying calming activities we were able to significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of the outbursts. It is very evident that Zoe is doing what she is meant to be doing and is really gifted with kids.

Supporting Children's Needs
Ms. Zoe has a passion for working with students, and it really shows. She understands how children learn and can offer a variety of ways to support a student with what they need. She uses different types of manipulatives to help students with fine motor skills as well as a variety of handwriting and typing programs depending on what works best for that particular student. She also has a depth of knowledge and skills for working with gross motor and sensory motor challenges as well. I highly recommend Zoe as a patient, caring, and dynamic Occupational Therapist who understands children's needs.
Charmain Tyler - Teacher
Zoe worked with our son when he was experiencing difficulty with fine motor and handwriting skills. It turned out that he also had difficulty with motor planning and sensory regulation. Zoe performed a thorough assessment and was able to further identify specific areas of need. She then used a multi sensory approach to help build our son's handwriting skills, alongside sensory regulation strategies and exercises to develop overall coordination. Our son made significant improvement with his writing skills and gained confidence at school. He also looked forward to meeting with Zoe which made it a very positive experience.
