What is
Occupational Therapy?

Pediatric Occupational Therapy addresses deficits and delays in physical, cognitive, sensory, and psychosocial skills in children.

OT works to develop abilities in a variety of areas to ensure the highest level of academic, functional, and social performance is achieved.

A child’s life is made up of occupations, or daily activities. These include playing, learning, and socializing. OTs work with children to help them succeed in these activities.-AOTA

Why Pediatric OT?

We believe that Occupational Therapy has the potential to elicit a profoundly beneficial impact in the lives of children. Skills and abilities can always be improved, and success in varying degrees is always achievable. Improved self-confidence, engagement, participation, and overall task performance leads to increased health, happiness, and a greater quality of life.

Why Private Pay?

Offering services through a private payment system liberates myself and my clients from the restraints of the insurance companies and the government payors. Reimbursement for services through these payment systems are accompanied by strict limitations on frequency, duration, number of sessions, and treatment interventions, leading to limited if any success. Private pay allows us to give the child exactly what they need without limits.

Where Does
Therapy Occur?

Therapy occurs in your home, nursery or preschool, or even at the park. This allows areas to be addressed in the child’s familiar environment and the context of where the skills will be used. This facilitates generalization of skills and abilities, ensuring success in various situations.

Therapy occurs when you and your child need it most. We offer flexible scheduling, typically in the morning and afternoon, but also evenings and weekends as needed.

How it Works

We accomplish our goals through custom tailored, individualized treatment plans, utilizing evidence-based interventions and approaches with proven effectiveness. We do not waste time or give false hope by pushing magic, miracle cures, or voodoo therapy. Our approach is honest, and our treatments are tried and true. We see the whole child and build a personalized plan, giving what they need, no more or less. We use simple, creative, and effective interventions, the foundation of Occupational Therapy.
