OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

SCREENING: An Occupational Therapy screening is beneficial to determine if a full Occupational Therapy evaluation and treatment would be beneficial. A typical screening takes 15-30 minutes and looks at a child’s strengths and areas of need.

EVALUATION: Occupational Therapy begins with a IMG_20140225_151156thorough evaluation of your child. From this, a written evaluation report is developed and reviewed with you.  Then a plan of treatment is created and agreed upon, with a schedule that fits into your life.

DIRECT TREATMENT: Occupational Therapy specializes in the treatment of sensory processing/integration deficits, sensorimotor deficits, fine motor, coordinationdifficulties, self-help difficulties, and motor limitations to name a few. Direct Treatment is a hands-on approach between the therapist and the child. Each sessions lasts 45 min-1 hr, depending on the child’s tolerance.

CONSULTATION: Consultation can be provided to parents, teachers, or other caregivers in a child’s life. It provides caregivers with the knowledge and tools to make environmental modifications, adaptations, and/or therapeutic interventions in order to help the child become successful.

HANDWRITING

Bankers pencil grip 1INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP CLASSES: Handwriting difficulties can be detrimental to a child’s academic performance AND their self-esteem. Children who struggle with handwriting early, often develop bad habits that later impact the quality of their work and ability to complete work in a timely manner. Grades suffer, self-esteem decreases, and frustration levels increase. The “Handwriting Without Tears” program is an excellent tool to help a child learn to write appropriately, or to correct their writing so they can improve their w
riting speed, fluidity, and legibility. If a child is having handwriting difficulties, a Handwriting Evaluation is performed and specific areas of handwriting are targeted during sessions. Classes or sessions for early writers who have not yet developed poor handwriting skills do not require an evaluation.

INTEGRATED LISTENING SYSTEM
Integrated Listening System (iLs) uses air AND bone conduction IMG_20140117_125134headphones, along with visual input, to provide a greater range of sensory input to the brain while requiring the child to perform increasingly challenging motor activities. “By simultaneously engaging senses which are neurologically interconnected, we are training the key areas involved in information processing.” (www.integratedlistening.com) Click on the iLs website link or contact me for more information!
