Individual Treatment (Children)
Clinic-Based Individual Sessions
In individual sessions, an occupational therapist works one-on-one with the client and the client’s family. Goals are targeted to the specific needs of the client and all activities are shaped toward achieving them. Parent /caregiver training is a critical component of individual sessions.
How Therapy Works
The occupational therapist first assesses the child to determine areas of strength and weakness. When therapy is indicated, the occupational therapist provides a program designed to meet the individual needs of the child, addressing weaknesses by including activities that build motor skills, expand play skills, and promote hand skills. Sensory processing issues are also addressed, using activities that provide the child with appropriate sensory input both within and outside of our clinic. We also provide parent training so parents can help their child improve in everyday situations at home and in the community.
