Occupational Therapists (OT) help to maximize your child’s operative engagement in the meaningful activities of daily living. Most people think that occupational therapy is only for students with disabilities. However, it can also be helpful to children who are having difficulties in school. Occupational therapy may be the best thing for your kid for reasons that might be affecting his/her behavior or learning, such as visual or perceptual problems, motor skills, cognitive processing, difficulties staying on task, mental health concerns, disorganization, or inappropriate sensory responses.
“Occupational Therapists [are] able to craft interventions tailored to your child’s skills, the specific activity, and its particular demands.”
Evaluations and assessments can determine your student’s strengths and weaknesses in a variety of areas. Based on those results the OT, trained to look at the “whole child”, can craft interventions tailored to your child’s skills, the specific activity, and its particular demands. Adaptations such as compensatory strategies and environmental modifications are commonly used to increase the likelihood of success. The OT looks at both your child’s skills and associated problems (including behavior), in conjunction with his/her visual, sensory, and physical capabilities as they are impacted by the school, home, and classroom environments to enhance success.
In a school-based setting, these interventions are designed to help your students maximize their potential. Occupational therapy enables participation in the full breadth of school activities—from paying attention in class, concentrating on the task at hand, or holding a pencil, a musical instrument, or even a book in the easiest way. Online Occupational Therapy has opened the door to provide these critical services to countless more children in need.
Global Teletherapy has recently added Online Occupational Therapy to its growing Online Therapy Agency. While some providers have been in business longer, our therapists — who work directly with your children — are as equally experienced and qualified as those employed by older companies. All of our therapists are fully credentialed and certified in their field, and each has a minimum of 2 years clinical experience. Not only that, but we invest much more time and energy than other companies in personalizing each session to ensure your satisfaction. Often that “personal touch” can make all the difference!
If you need a company that has a vested interest in your success, will tirelessly work to get you results, and probably costs less while producing the same (or better) quality therapy, call us today to get started: 888-511-9395.
