I never want to stop doing OT!” – Molly loves OT that much! Thank you to Molly’s OT for all the energy, support, guidance and patience that you have invested in Molly. You have built up her strength, coordination, confidence and spacial awareness so classroom activities and lessons are now fun, rewarding and achievable. She is able to use all the skills that she has learnt from her OT sessions in the classroom with ease and confidence and it’s been wonderful to see our little girl blossom and enjoy every minute of Grade 1. A “HIGH FIVE” to the Step by Step Reddam OT team – you rock!
Step by Step OT at Reddam has been a great experience for my two boys. The therapist took the time to get to know what drives and motivates each child, and then adjust her style to enhance the required outcomes for them. Our overall experience of OT has been that it is a professional, caring, efficient, creative, results oriented environment, where all focus is on the child. I guess the two greatest critics, the boys, love going to OT as it is fun learning with the OT; what more needs to be said? Thank you Step by Step OT.
Step by Step has been an integral part in our daughter’s development to ensure she has the abilities to cope with tasks that many people take for granted. We opted for this practice based on the close relationship with her school; the fact that not only the therapists but also her class tutors/teachers provide input and are personally involved in her growth, has resulted in our more confident person, ready to tackle her day. Therapists at Step by Step have always managed to make her feel as the most important person to them, treating her with patience and kindness. We have always been kept informed of her progress and we have seen the positive effects at home and in her reports. We are grateful for the impact Step by Step has had in her life thus far.
