Rebecca Lockyer, Occupational Therapist
Rebecca is the Director of Little TheraPeas.
Rebecca has a special interest in autism spectrum disorder, motor coordination difficulties, sensory processing difficulties and developmental delays.
Rebecca strongly believes in family involvement throughout therapy. She enjoys taking the child’s lead and entering into their world. In the initial stages of treatment she feels it is important to establish therapy goals addressing the child’s individual needs. She understands that no two children are the same and uses the therapy goals to guide sessions.
Rebecca is committed to providing holistic client-centred services and working collaboratively with family members, caregivers, teachers and other therapists. She believes that everyone should be well educated on the needs of the child in order to achieve the best outcome possible.
Rebecca loves working with children aged 0-16 years with autism spectrum disorder, global developmental delay, sensory processing issues, motor coordination problems, handwriting difficulties and toileting difficulties. She is passionate about assisting children become independent in all their occupational roles, whether it be in play, reading, writing, dressing, toileting – basically anything that children want or need to do.
The key approaches Rebecca uses include Sensory Processing, DIR Floortime, The Alert Program, Zones of Regulation, SuperFlex, Social Thinking and Positive Parenting.
Rebecca also provides clinical supervision for occupational therapists and occupational therapy students. She also regularly does seminars for parents on various topics including handwriting, toileting, sensory processing difficulties and autism.
