In March 2018 I pitched my idea of a mobile sensory integration clinic, a converted school bus that will visit rural communities in southern Alberta. I ran a crowdfunding campaign through ATB financial and successfully raised $10,000 to get my project started.
At the time, I was a private practice Occupational Therapist providing services in rural Southern Alberta. I had contracted services with Livingston Range School Division, as well as with Piikani board of Education. I was already travelling the roads but often didn’t have the right equipment to help children with sensory issues. What I needed was a space with swings, mini trampolines, climbing equipment and crash mats that could travel with me. So with the money I raised in my ATB Booster Campaign, I purchased a bus (the old Sunshine Village Ski Bus) and converted it into a mobile sensory clinic. The bus is equipped with specialized sensory equipment to create a fun and safe space for learning and sensorimotor development.
I'm an experienced occupational therapist with training in sensory integration so I can assess the children and set up the bus specific to each child's needs, or I can use the bus to help groups of children explore, learn and develop sensory integration through play.
