ABOUT US

We, Danielle and Megan, are both registered Occupational Therapists practising in Toronto. We share a passion for accessibility, inclusivity and using our training and energy to help others.  We recognize that there is a lack of specialized services to meet the unique needs of neurodiverse individuals and couples in their relationships. RelateTO was created to fill that gap by offering unique specialized services to give neurodiverse individuals the skill sets they need to achieve their goals.  

 

We have a long history of working together, problem solving and collaborating as graduates from the same Occupational Therapy Master's program at U of T. Together, we have travelled and completed clinical work internationally and we currently serve as Co-Chairs for the International Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation - Kenya group. Our partnership is strengthened not only by these shared passions and experiences, but by the laughter and joy we share in the process.

WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?

WE

OT

Occupational therapy is a health care profession that promotes well-being by helping people engage in things that are important to them. For many, the ability to connect and relate with others is fundamental to their sense of self and community. 

As occupational therapists, we have a compassionate but goal-driven approach to assessing the obstacles faced by an individual - and optimizing strategies to overcome them.
