Why Partner with World of OT??

We’re not looking to just add another thing to your schedule. We find ways to bring the benefit of OT
to your family’s specific needs and routines.

 

We understand the value and necessity of quality family time. Our days are 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. We use 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.

 

We not only serve children directly but share our effective approach with families and professionals working with children.

 

Our ultimate goal and mission are to provide high impact services
that equip and empower children, parents, teachers, and OTs.

Services

Direct OT Services

Our primary focus is directly providing pediatric occupational therapy services to children 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. We take the time with a holistic view – looking at strengths, weaknesses, environment, and the activities they need and want 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 work 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.

Consultation Services

Are you a teacher or parent concerned about meeting the needs of a student so they can best participate in educational activities? A consultation can help you identify useful skills or strategies.

Available over the phone, via telehealth or in person in your home, or at school within the San Francisco area. A consultation typically includes some time for observation, discussing concerns, and asking questions. Following the consult, you will receive a written report with practical suggestions.

Consultation services can address questions from the parents, teachers, or other team members. It’s a great tool for brainstorming ideas or talking through the implementation of new strategies to support your child.

Common goals of a consult:

    • Help you recognize your child’s unique needs
    • Provide recommendations for appropriate services or school environments
    • Suggest routines and practical tools
    • Empower advocacy for the child’s needs
    • Determine if pediatric OT services are needed
    • Training/home programs

You don’t need to figure out how to meet a child’s need alone. We are here to problem solve and find solutions so every child can thrive at home and in school.

Educational Seminars

We love to share our knowledge by providing educational seminars to teachers and staff. You can pick a topic related to our specialty pediatric occupational therapy based on your particular needs and interests.

Topics in the past have included:

    • Supporting attention and focus
    • Emotional and sensory regulation
    • Promoting fine motor development and handwriting
    • Sensory solutions for the classroom

Participants in the course gain skills and knowledge that can be applied immediately. Each course focuses on in-depth knowledge of the topic, understanding developmental progression, and how to apply the concepts with students.

We promote the application of knowledge through case studies and practical tools and strategies. Time is provided for staff to discuss challenges they are facing with students and  brainstorm reasons behind what they are seeing and ways to support the student.
