Designed to Support Your Child + Your Family
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy values the importance of independence and quality of life through engaging clients in occupations that are meaningful and necessary activities of everyday life. For children, those occupations include playing, school/learning, self-care tasks, socializing, and any activities the child may participate in throughout the day. For older children, these occupations may include, maintaining friendships, transitioning to work, gaining higher education, exploring leisure activities, and driving.
Occupational therapists assess the underlying skills that are required to complete those tasks and provide therapeutic interventions to address the child’s needs.

Consults are 30-minute phone calls free of charge for me to gain a better understanding of your child’s needs.
This is an opportunity for me to determine if your child will benefit from occupational therapy services. If I feel occupational therapy is not the right fit I will work with you to find the necessary resources you need.
In home Occupational Therapy
Evaluations will take place in your home and consist of standardized testing, parent interview, observations, and questionnaires. Depending on your concerns for your child, a variety of skills may be assessed such as, fine motor development, visual motor development, sensory processing skills, visual perceptual skills, handwriting skills, gross motor development, daily living skills.
A comprehensive evaluation report will be provided with results, plan of care, and any other referrals or recommendations.
Occupational therapy consists of skilled interventions to improve self-care, fine motor, visual motor, sensory processing, cognitive deficits, and overall coordination difficulties.
My treatment approach is family and client-centered with a strong emphasis on home programming, working toward functional goals, and helping your child reach their maximum potential during this phase of their life.
Based on the results of your child’s occupational therapy evaluation, treatment may or may not be recommended. If ongoing treatment is recommended, goals will be established and a frequency of treatment for one-on-one sessions will be suggested based on the needs of your child and your schedule. I will work with you to decide what will be the best fit for your family.
