Remote Learning Hybrid Program - UNAVAILABLE
OT For Kidz is a Remote Learning Satellite Site!
We provide parents with an option to bring their child to a place which their child can have access to participate in their remote learning with supervision when their child is required to participate remotely at home. Children participate in their learning activities and connect with their teachers in their own learning space.
What so different about our Remote Learning Hybrid Site?
The owners of OT for Kidz are both Occupational Therapists! Like all programs at our facility, they also designed this one. Our facility is also a "sensory gym" that is designed to facilitate calm bodies and active minds for learning readiness. Embedded in our remote learning program are the following:
There is a controlled amount of children in our spacious room . Each child will sit at their own social distance desk area separated from their peers with table guards. Children must bring their own ear phones for their own devices. This helps to reduce auditory distractions for all the children in-room but also reduces the speaker to listener distance to help your child listen to their teacher remotely. Each child have enough space to accommodate their device and materials.
Sensory breaks helps to decrease impulsiveness for calm bodies and increase active minds for focus. Incorporated in our program are group stay-in-space morning and midday workout regime. If need be, other strategies may be provided as we can utilize our sensory gyms for more intense sensory breaks (although this is not a substitute for therapy). Breaks are also important for limiting screen time to help maintain a healthy brain!
Children have the option to sit on a yoga/therapy ball which facilitates low intensity sensory movement. Therapy Ball seating is great for some kids who need to wiggle and move to help focus!
Children with IEPs
For those children with IEPs and require occupational therapy services from an OT For Kidz clinician, your child can be taken to a separate therapeutic location in the facility to be provided with their service
