Innovative OT provides intervention services for individuals who have sustained serious injuries in a motor vehicle or workplace accident.
Our areas of clinical practice include acquired brain injury/neurological impairments, orthopedic injury (spinal cord injury/amputation/fractures), psychological disabilities and chronic pain.
We provide hospital discharge planning services, followed by community based individualized care planning. There are a multitude of different types of intervention services our team provides including: home/vehicle accessibility, equipment prescription, community safety/reintegration, wheelchair positioning/seating prescriptions, activities of daily living (ADL) re-training/functional restoration programming, cognitive remediation/compensatory therapies, cognitive behavioural therapy, quality of life and return to modified sport programs. Our team is additionally skilled in vocational services, including return to work programs, work-site, vocational exploration and ergonomic assessments.
We are seasoned in the completion of various assessments. As occupational therapists we consider the individual as a whole and assess cognitive function,
psychosocial barriers impeding restoration and physical disabilities. This enables our therapists to develop highly individualized and comprehensive rehabilitation programs. Consideration of whole person impairment enables us to prepare detailed assessments of Attendant Care Needs (Form 1 completion), Medical-Legal/ Slip-Fall and Future Care Cost reports.
On August 27, 2015, the Ontario Legislature released the changed definition for catastrophic impairment determination which will affect those in accidents on or after June 1, 2016. Our team has proactively adapted our approaches and is skilled in the completion of functional assessments (in-home and community based situational), administering the Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended (GOSE), and Spinal Cord Injury Measure (SCIM). We monitor our client's daily functioning to ensure that should they present with impairments which may qualify them for a catastrophic designation, this is appropriately pursued.
Finally, given the expertise of the team, we are often requested to prepare critiques and rebuttal reports.
We understand the importance of the role of the occupational therapist in assisting with both functional restoration and file documentation. As a team we are proactive, client centered, creative and take great pride in the services we provide.
