Pediatric occupational therapists use a variety of techniques to evaluate physical, sensory, visual-perceptual, and cognitive deficits to identify specific treatments to help each patient and his or her family. Parents and family members are encouraged to take active roles in a child’s rehabilitation process.
Occupational therapists make home visits as well, to determine what modifications are necessary to ensure independence and safety once a child returns home from the hospital.
Services we offer include:
- Evaluation to obtain proper equipment such as wheelchairs and standers
- Training children to use adaptive devices and assistive technology to promote independence
- Developing home and school programs to involve parents and teachers on a daily basis
Spasticity, cerebral palsy and seating and mobility rehabilitation clinics are held regularly to meet the unique needs of patients who require ongoing therapy.
