What does an OT session look like?
Well it depends. Every therapist has different skills and a different approach.
Generally, when you have your first appointment, it would be a phone consultation. This gives you and your OT a chance to discuss about your concerns, background information about your child, and to collaborate on what goals to work on.
Your first in-person appointment will be an initial assessment. During the initial assessment, your therapist may use standardized or non-standardized assessments to determine where your child is physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively, and/or mentally. As well, depending on the child’s age, interests, abilities, pediatric therapy can often look and feel like we are playing. However, our OTs are always assessing and making changes to determine or challenge your child’s skills. After the initial assessment is completed, an individualized OT treatment plan is created based on the goals we are working towards for the follow-up sessions.
In a follow-up session, it involves educating parents or the client (depending on the age). As well, working on the specific skills through different interventions.
Is treatment right for my child?
If you are unsure if occupational therapy can benefit your child, our team can assess and provide therapy to help them and your family. Once our pediatric occupational therapists identify your child’s issues, we can work as a team on the underlying areas that require improvement. We do this by using proven techniques that will offer a lifelong change.
