How can our Occupational Therapy services help your child or young adult?
Our occupational therapists help children and young adults with physical, developmental or behavioral disabilities become more successful in their ability to perform meaningful activities of daily life. They help children function as independently as possible in the three basic areas that typically “occupy” a child’s time, such as self-care, play/leisure, and work-related skills as in those used in school.
Our therapists use mainly play-based methods in our child-centered environment which includes toys, musical instruments, art supplies, and much more. Therapists get to know your child, their abilities, challenges, and interests. They are creative in finding techniques and fun activities that motivate children to reach their goals.
Because most of a child’s learning takes place at home and in school, we teach family members therapeutic activities they can enjoy with their child outside of the agency. As part of our “circle of care,” families receive parent education, advocacy and support at no charge through our Family Support services. We also provide teachers with information and techniques to help children progress in the classroom.
We accept Medicaid, Medicaid HMOs, and most private insurances.
