Pediatric Occupational Therapy
What is Occupational Therapy?
Pediatric occupational therapy is centered around supporting children in developing the skills they need to successfully participate in their occupations of learning, playing, and growing. Developmental delays, injuries, and physical limitations can impede a child’s ability to complete age-appropriate tasks or occupations, participate in daily activities, and reach milestones, but therapy can help! Occupational therapists observe and evaluate your child to assess areas of difficulty as well as strengths and create an individualized treatment plan for them.
Areas Occupational Therapy Can Address
Frequently Asked Questions
After scheduling an occupational therapy session, I will complete an evaluation to assess skills, strengths, and areas that may need support. An evaluation includes clinical observation, parent interview, and a functional skills assessment. You will be provided with a comprehensive report that outlines my recommendations for therapy, treatment plan, and individualized goals. This will all be reviewed with you and resources will be provided for you to start practicing skills at home with your child.
After the evaluation process, we will schedule weekly or bi-weekly sessions to address your child’s specific needs and goals.
In person sessions can be scheduled in the community or at your home. Locations further than 15 miles from Riverhead will be charged additional travel fee. Please reach out to find out more information.
Traditional in person therapy sessions require time away from work and school. Meeting virtually can be a beneficial, convenient, and fun way to practice skills anywhere!
Private occupational therapy follows different guidelines to qualify children for services compared to public schools or other programs. Your child can still benefit from occupational therapy services even if they were previously assessed and did not qualify.
I am an out of network provider. I can provide a superbill for possible full or partial insurance reimbursement.
