Screenings are a short process to determine whether a child would benefit from a formal OT evaluation. The therapist will choose a brief tool to use based on parental concerns.
Initial evaluations determine whether the child would benefit from treatment. The therapist will choose assessments based on parental concerns. A formal written report with the results and therapist recommendations are included in the initial evaluation.
A re-evaluation is done every year in order to determine progress and if the child would continue to benefit from on-going treatment. Assessments are chosen based on parental concerns and if they were used during the initial evaluation.
We provide highly individualized treatments for 45- 60 minutes based on the result of the child's evaluation. Our engaging and child-centric approach prioritizes creative play and tapping into the child's internal motivations. Our skilled occupational therapists use imaginative and stimulating exercises to address fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing, and other developmental areas. By aligning activities with the child's interests and internal motivations, we create a positive and motivating environment that encourages active participation and skill-building.
Our consultations extend beyond individual sessions, encompassing a collaborative approach with your child's teacher(s), other therapists, and professionals who work with your child. We engage in productive discussions, collaborating closely to align therapeutic strategies with the child's educational goals. By involving teachers, caregivers, and other professionals, we aim to create a united front in supporting the child's success.
With the necessary permissions from the school, our experienced occupational therapists can conduct observations tailored to address your child's challenges. By observing in their natural environment, we can better understand their daily struggles and provide recommendations into improving their day. This service also allows the therapists to collaborate with the child's teacher(s) and parents.
