Opal Kids is a private therapy practice with locations in north, south and East Trinidad. We provide Occupational Therapy evaluation and treatment for children from birth to eighteen years.
A range of interventions is offered to address sensory, motor or cognitive difficulties in both the home and school environments. Workshops are also offered for parents, teachers, and others involved in childcare.
Opal Kids' occupational therapists are registered with the Council for Professions Related to Medicine, and are passionate about providing the best quality service to clients and their families.
Opal Kids also partners with Kevin Ching, Developmental Therapist, to provide behavioural and social intervention at its Port-of-Spain branch.
Occupational therapy helps people of all ages and stages of life to achieve their best level of independence in all their everyday activities, when they are faced with injury, illness or disability - whether physical, mental or emotional. In children, occupational therapy helps those who have difficulty with home tasks - dressing or organising their day as age-appropriate; school tasks - paying attention, participating in games, or handwriting; or playing appropriately with peers.
What is Occupational Therapy?
We are really excited for Opal Kids’ first ever Christmas Camp! Each camp day has a different theme, and attendance can be per day or for the whole week.
- Mon 16th: A Christmas Story (the story of Christmas)
- Tues 17th: Sweet smell of Christmas (activities to awaken the senses!)
- Wed 18th: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (all Grinch everything!)
- Thurs 19th: Trini Christmas Is De Bess!
Each day/theme has a story to go with it, and each day we will have therapeutic activities, crafts and snack times that are related to the theme.
This camp will take place at our south office and, as always, spaces are limited!
Opal Kids introduces #twocents, its advice column for parents, teachers, professionals...anyone! Have a question for an OT that you haven't been able to ask? (Sometimes our fault, there aren't enough work hours in a day!) This advice column was created just for that! Quick and easy: send in your question, get it answered! We'd be happy to help 😀
