Clinical Services

Clinical Services at Aptus Treatment Centre include both Occupational Therapy and Expressive Arts Therapy. Each program (Toronto Children’s Program, York Region Children’s Program, Adult Day Services and Residential Services) has their own clinical team, which may include occupational therapists, art therapists, drama therapists and music therapists. In addition, clinical teams receive consultation from other clinicians such as behaviour consultants, osteopathic practitioners, dental hygienists, chiropractors and massage therapists.

Our clinical team approaches each person and family we support individually. Personalized assessments and treatment plans help people achieve their goals and increase their quality of life. 

During treatment, we use a holistic approach, addressing biological, emotional, sensory, behavioural, and social strengths, needs and challenges. We believe that not one single approach will work for every person and, therefore, to provide the best care possible, the team will use several different therapeutic modalities including sensory therapy, behavioural analysis, psychotherapy and any other therapy that is required.
