Occupational Therapist

The occupational therapist will help youth adapt and integrate in the workplace with more autonomy, confidence and control. After carrying out initial and ongoing assessments on 'occupation performance' needs of the young person, the occupational therapist will evaluate the skills and abilities required by the person to find employment.

 

After devising assessment tools to understand the abilities as well as limitations such as physical, social, behavioural, and vocational aspects of young persons, the occupational therapist will formulate individualised programs aimed at assisting the development of skills.  This involves assisting young persons to write a resume and create a personalised portfolio, use of the internet and other means to find work.

 

The occupational therapist will also assist young persons with other functional and occupational aspects such as personal apperance and hygiene, use of transportation, and mastering skills which are essential on the workplace such as team work, communication, networking, flexibility, assertiveness, coping, problems solving skills and conflict management.

 

She will also support individuals with special needs especially those with psychosocial, behavioural and physical problems.

 

If you are interested in setting up a meeting with the Occupational Therapist send us an e-mail with some tentative dates and we will get back to you.
