OT is a skilled service assisting clients with identified conditions to help gain independence. Using trialed strategies, an occupational therapist helps your child advance with their brain, muscles, and senses. Results come in the form of cognitive, behavioral, developmental progression that the child had difficulty progressing forward with prior.
Occupational therapy services are provided to clients who have identified developmental delays, under-developed motor skills, visual perceptual and visual-motor difficulties, upper extremity dysfunction, adaptive behavior skill difficulties, or need assistance with activities related to daily living skills (i.e.: toileting, dressing, grooming, etc).
You will need a prescription from your doctor to receive OT services and the prescription will be required at your evaluation. The first visit will be an assessment using standardized occupational therapy assessments as the client is able to participate. Goals are determined and set based on identified deficits and the level of importance that the family places on addressing these deficits. Your occupational therapist will guide you in understanding childhood development so that measurable goals will be realistic based on achievable proposed results.
