Clinicians in Community Based Rehab Services work with the child, family, other team members, and community partners to help to address movement, independence, and participation of your child in carrying out everyday activities. Social workers provide a range of intervention and support services directed toward supporting the child, youth and family with the impact of disability.
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech-Language Pathology
- Recreation Therapy
- Social Work
What does Community Based Rehab Service look like?
Within our Community Based Rehab Services we may offer:
- Assessment and monitoring of functional abilities
- Parent education sessions
- Individual or group-based therapy with a clinician or clinician assistant
- Home programming support
- Consultation, and/or support for community integration
These services are built upon research, clinical knowledge and leading practices. Services are reviewed and updated as new research evidence and knowledge emerges.
The mode of service delivery offered to a client and family is selected based on the current goals of the child/youth/family, and the needs and abilities of the child/youth and families at that particular point in time.
For example, it may be determined that the most effective way to meet a specific goal is to educate parents/caregivers about strategies to use with their child throughout their day, as a child plays and learns naturally. Or, it may be decided that a child would benefit from working toward goals in groups with peers that are working on similar goals to increase their interest and motivation to participate.
In addition to the way service is delivered, the frequency and duration of service may also change and evolve as life needs change. As more research is published, we advance our understanding regarding the frequency and duration of therapy needed to help children; youth and families achieve their personal best. We factor this evidence into the responsibility we have to our community to utilize available funding to meet the needs of our population.
