Sharpe OT Services believes in a multi-disciplinary, team approach. We work closely with educators and other health care professionals, in the best interest of the child. It takes a whole village to raise a child.It is encouraged that our therapists collaborate among the child's "village" of caregivers, teachers, assistants, and other professionals.
We offer internship positions to candidates of occupational therapy programs (students who plan to apply to an OT program in the near future) in order to promote the profession.
We host student placements for OT students from universities across Canada, in order to share what we know about working with the pediatric population.
We offer community based occupational therapy services (in home, parks, stores, library, pools and at job sites. We collaborate with community partners in order to obtain placements for our older clients to gain work experience or volunteer hours for their resume.
