Steve’s area of interest is pediatrics; he enjoys working with the younger population, building productive relationships with children and their families to make a positive difference in their lives.
Steve’s therapeutic interventions focus on the person’s goals, rather than the expectations of what their disability will allow them to do. Steve implements an evidence-based practice to gain a holistic understanding of his client’s functional abilities.
Steve uses a play-based approach to enhance children’s social skills, cognitive skills, fine and gross motor skills, alongside their ability to self-regulate their emotions and behaviours. Steve firmly believes that when clients enjoy coming to their Occupational Therapy sessions, this increases their participation in therapeutic activities, increasing their overall therapy outcomes.

Most inspiring part of your job: Making a difference in the lives of children and their families. I get a buzz from helping people be the best they can be and sharing the joy that this provides with others only makes it more rewarding.
