President - Clinical Director
Lesya Dyk OT Services

 

Lesya Dyk has been in practice as an Occupational Therapist for over 25 years.  She founded Lesya Dyk O.T. Services, an Occupational Therapy practice in 1998, serving people who as a result of their car accidents, had to regain their function through therapy and home modification.

 

Currently, her practice has diversified, providing not only clinical services but also educational support and consultation services specifically in the Accessibility arena.  With respect to her role as an educator, she is a Clinical Lecturer, Tutor and Facilitator at McMaster University in not only the Rehabilitation Science program but has also tutored in the School of Medicine and the Programme for Faculty Development.

 

As a leader, she is past President of the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario (COTO) and current Treasurer of the Ontario Society of Occupational Therapists (OSOT).

 

Lesya also sits on the advisory board for the York - Seneca Rehabilitation Programme.  She served as a founding member of the steering committee of Home Modification Canada, an organization that is striving to organize, certify and support research in the home modifications industry.  She now sits as a council member on the Canadian Home Builders' Association - Home Modification Council, representing the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.  She is contributing to the development of the Canadian version of the Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) course planning.

 

Lesya's passion is to support the professional practice of Occupational Therapists and to ensure that OT's are at the table where Accessibility and Barrier-Free design are being discussed.
