What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation.
We use activities that are meaningful to children (PLAY FUN PLAY) to treat their difficulties – whether these are caused by physical, sensory, psychosocial, developmental or learning difficulties.
Through occupational therapy we aim to promote appropriate development. We have a strong focus on preventing delay and encouraging independence.
Because we consider all areas of your child’s life – including play, interaction, independence, self care and school.
What Our Families are Saying
Jacqui has worked with Owen since he was 3 years old. She was part of the team that diagnosed him. She has helped us deal with Owen’s issues with a sense of humor and a love that is more like family than a therapist.
Jacqui goes way above the realms of what is expected of a therapist. She is truly a part of our therapy team and uses her extensive knowledge of occupational therapy and working with children with special needs to help us understand Owen’s needs.
Owen loves his OT sessions and has fun while he is learning. Jacqui has worked with Owen on gross motor, fine motor, letter and shape recognition, vestibular, and proprioception amongst others. Owen is much more regulated when he has regular OT sessions.
Jacqui is creative in her approach and always tries different things to meet our goals. We attribute much of Owen’s progress to Jacqui.
Thank you to the team at Sensory Matters for the care, kindness, and compassion you have shown to my 4-year-old daughter with Down Syndrome. Since the very first phone call I had with Jacklynn Langkilde (over 3 years ago), I just knew that this was the place for my Liv.
She loves her therapy sessions, or rather ‘playdates with Chels’. And I love to receive feedback via the SeeSaw app so that I can stay up to date with therapy sessions. I am truly grateful to you all and I look forward to many more years of happy therapy sessions together.
Connecting with Sensory Matters is one of the best decisions I’ve made for my son! As a parent to a little special needs boy, I can’t say enough positive things about Jacqui and her team at Sensory Matters, the support and level of care for my child is unmatchable. They have been an invaluable part of my son’s growth and development. Jacqui has gone above and beyond helping with suggestions to our family, teachers, and schools.
She is an expert who inspires positive social interaction and excels at making therapy fun. My son is excited about his weekly sessions and his balance, fine motor, and communication skills continue to improve with every visit. Equally importantly, his experiences at Sensory Matters have contributed to his confidence, independence, and success. I’m grateful for such a wonderful group of therapists and highly recommend it to anyone hoping to improve the life of their child.
Jacklynn treated our son Alex for Sensory Processing Disorder. We had several concerns regarding Alex’s behavior and general temperament and after an initial consultation and assessment of Alex, Jacklynn was able to explain to us what was going on with our little guy. She was very empathetic and kind and did an amazing job of guiding us as parents and (more importantly) Alex through his therapy. She gave us constant feedback on his progress and was approachable and gentle in her dealings. Jacklynn is knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and it is evident in how she interacts with her patients. We will be forever grateful for the impact that Jacklynn has had on our Alex. It has honestly been nothing short of life-changing.
