Medical Legal

After a traumatic personal injury event, it is critical to identify all areas of dysfunction through comprehensive assessment to develop the most effective treatment plan. Our experienced occupational therapists assess adults and children comprehensively (including physical, cognitive, behavioural and psycho-social aspects) and take a case management approach to every client’s care. Our therapists are continually upgrading their skills to offer our clients the interventions that best meet their needs.

Our team is led by Occupational Therapists with extensive understanding of the medical legal system. Our reports are internally reviewed and all clinicians receive mentorship and support on working within the complex medical legal system. We are part of the Ontario Rehab Alliance and have presence on the Ontario Society of Occupational Therapists auto sector team.
