Solutions for high functioning kids and teens!

What if there were a better way to manage a child’s “meltdowns”?

The primary reason so many parents struggle with their child’s unpredictable meltdowns (longer than they should be) is often because they have been told to work on “discipline” with their children, take pills, or accept that it’s “an age thing” and their child will “grow out of it”. Can you relate?

 

Sensory challenges can cause tantrums and "meltdowns".

Take our Sensory Quiz to see if your child's meltdowns are sensory based!

This is How We Do It 

 The goal of occupational therapy intervention is to improve a child's success in school, work, home and the community. 

Occupational Therapy improves a child’s skills in his “occupation” which may include handwriting, play, eating, and dressing skills as well as other things kids do in their days. We do this through focus on fine motor skills, visual and perceptual skills, core strength, bilateral coordination and sensory-motor integration.

In our clinic we work to balance therapeutic play-exercise aimed at the child with education and support for their parents. By developing relationships with not only our children but also with their parents, we are able to make more change. In addition to the improved function of the child, our goal is for parents to leave our clinic with the tools to support to them.

Parents can expect to be intimately involved in treatment and are present during sessions. All caregivers are encouraged to be a part of treatment.  Sessions often include time spent collaborating with families.

 

Our individual and group sessions are 35-40 minutes in length. Generally, treatment plans are about 8 months to 30 months depending on the client's goals. This would be discussed upon completion of the evaluation. We provide intensive services (multiple sessions per week) in order to achieve neurological improvement.

 

The child's first appointment is 75 minute evaluation session in which we establish goals and a treatment plan. Depending on the type of service you are receiving, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan focused on your areas of concern. During all evaluative sessions the caregivers are present.  Evaluative sessions will be a combination of standardized testing, caregiver/client interview, structured observation and observation of caregiver/child interactions.
