Welcome!

Opal Kids is a private therapy practice with locations in Cascade, Arima and San Fernando to serve clients all over Trinidad. We have a vibrant team of therapists who provide Occupational Therapy treatment for children from birth to eighteen years.

A range of interventions is offered to address sensory, motor, cognitive or other functional  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. 

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?

Our philosophy

At Opal Kids we value each child as an individual with unique thoughts, interests and personalities. With that in mind, our philosophy is to "see the child first." We work within an occupational model of treatment, meaning that we take into account the families' values, goals and interests when planning treatment goals.
