Junior “Get focused” OT summer club

The better the focus, the better the outcomes!

Is your child in constant motion? Impulsive? Fidgeting? Have a hard time getting focused and staying focused? These are signs that a child may have problems with self-regulation. Self-regulation is the ability to monitor and control one’s self to be able to stay focused on an activity and transition between activities. This can be a challenge for some children with sensory issues and or development issues.

We use games, pictures and play as therapy meduims, drawing on the principles of the alert program to equip your child with practical easy to use ideas to support self regulation.
