The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance and Engagement guides occupational therapists to consider the dynamic relationship between an individuals’ physical, cognitive and psychological status, their physical and cultural and social environment, and their functionality in normal life (CAOT, 1997, 2007) Individuals that are experiencing post concussive symptoms or have been diagnosed with a non-complex or complex traumatic brain injury require specialized consideration of physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that can result from their injury. In collaboration with our team of physicians, our therapists utilize their extensive experience and specialized training in concussions brain injury recovery and rehabilitation, to formulate a clear path of treatment.
Occupational therapists are trained to analyze your ability to participate in all activities of daily living. We work to understand where difficulties lie in achieving daily tasks – which can include but are not limited to; self-care tasks, individuals’ cohabitants, your home, interactions in the community, vocational background, academia, as well as recreation and leisure pursuits. We work with physical, mental, and emotional disability as an obstacle to independence.
Our approach is to work with the individual, their families, employers and other members of their community to achieve success in both their recovery and rehabilitation goals. Occupational therapy can help each individual to manage their symptoms and integrate/return them to their pre-accident activities of daily living. Through collaboration with the individual’s physicians and multidisciplinary treatment teams, we are able to establish a clear path of treatment we call the “Concussion Care Plan”. This allows us to structure, execute and achieve optimal outcomes in each individual’s rehabilitation and/or recovery goals. We promote evidence-based intervention, including recent Canadian clinical guidelines and occupational therapy models of practice.
