What is our Approach

Environment

We provide therapy at home home and in the community.

Results in a clinic are often not translated in a child's natural setting. Therefore Swift offers sessions in those natural settings.

We use a fixed cost model -- where you will not be charged travel time. Our company provides you with a highly rated and experienced occupational therapist that resides in your community.

  • School based assessment packages

Assessment Types:

  • Sensory Profile: the sensory profile provides a standard method for occupational therapists to measure a child’s sensory processing abilities and to profile the affects of sensory processing on functional performance in the daily life of a child.
  • Beery VMI: this is a 3-part assessment which screens a child’s motor coordination, visual motor integration and visual perception.
  • Brigance Diagnostic Inventory of Early Development: a standardized assessment that measures diagnoses delays (i.e. standing, walking, stair climbing, running, jumping, kicking, catching, balance) and age equivalents of the development of children from birth to seven years of age.
  • McMaster Handwriting Assessment (2nd edition): this assessment evaluates the handwriting of school-aged children in kindergarten to grade 6. This assessment was designed to identify the specific areas of handwriting (i.e. postural control, behavioural, pencil grasp, pencil pressure, spacing, reversals) a child is having difficulty with.
