Get direct help for your child with pediatric occupational therapy services in San Francisco. Direct OT starts with an evaluation and works towards goals through treatment sessions.
Pediatric Occupational Therapy Evaluation
The evaluation provides the foundation for understanding your child and family. You’ll get new insights and tools when you join us in taking a holistic view of your child– looking at strengths, weaknesses, environment, and the activities your child needs and wants to do.
Children have different needs or challenges in different environments. For this reason, our comprehensive assessment and treatment plans look at their ability to function at home, school, and maybe even a local park.
At the end of the evaluation, you receive a detailed report outlining the ﬁndings from the assessments and recommendations for next steps. We go over the report in person, giving you the chance to ask questions and receive coaching on strategies or suggestions for home.
Pediatric OT Treatment
After getting to know your child in the initial evaluation, it’s time to choose a treatment package that best meets the needs of your family and begin working towards mutually selected goals.
OT treatment sessions provide your child with the opportunity to build skills through the “just right challenge.” OT treatment is fun! Play-based interventions are a great way to target challenging skills.
And it’s not always about developing a new skill. There are many ways to help your child function better. Sometimes it’s just a matter of finding a new way to complete the task or activity.
The goal is to facilitate change and transformation so that children can meet their potential- gain new skills and tools, and generalize what they learn into their natural environment while the team can better understand their child’s unique needs and feel more confident in supporting them.
All packages are designed with your family’s needs in mind. In addition to individual therapy sessions, it includes consultation calls, an online learning platform for resources, updates and homework, and direct support through email, texts and voice messages. Find the level of support to fit your needs and we’ll work together to utilize the services for maximum impact.
Each package contains a fixed amount of services for the quarter, but you are able to use them as you see fit. So while the packages include the essential components for success, they also leave room for flexibility!
We’re not looking to just add another thing to your schedule. Instead, you’ll find peace in OT that fits into your family’s specific needs and routines.
Your family’s quality time together is valuable. Days can feel hectic – filled with to-dos and deadlines. But the foundation of a healthy family will always be quality time together – doing chores, playing board games, or simple adventures in the park.
With this understanding in mind, we aren’t looking to interrupt your family life, but rather to integrate therapy strategies into your normal routines. You’ll get effective strategies to address problems impacting your child’s ability to participate in daily activities at home and school, making sure to incorporate your unique goals and priorities for your child.
This isn’t just for your child, but for anyone in their world – parents, teachers, grandparents or caregivers. It’s about partnering together to guide your child.
