Occupational Therapy

1. What is occupational therapy? 

    1. Occupational therapists help people be as independent and successful in their daily lives as possible.  OT's work by conducting "evaluations" to figure out what the barriers (sensory, visual, cognitive, social, emotional, etc.) are to the client’s participation in their daily activities (called "occupations"). They also work to identify any characteristics in the persons' environment/context that may have an impact on their daily functioning. Once this evaluation has been completed, the OT will development a plan of care to support the clients increased successful participation in any of the identified areas of dysfunction in their daily lives (self-care, school, play, work, chores, etc.) and improve the clients overall quality of life and well-being!

  2. What to expect first time visit? 

    1. Before the client attends the first session, the parent or guardian must have a physician referral. Once this is received, the client can be seen for a first session, or “evaluation.” Before attending this session, the parent or caregiver is required to fill out the necessary paperwork, which includes a very thorough look at the client’s daily functioning. This provides the OT with the necessary details to complete their evaluation and prepare their report. On the first visit, the OT will complete an evaluation with the client. After this session has concluded, the OT will work to prepare a report and develop a plan of care with the youth and their family to target the goals of the client.
