Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.  Pediatric therapy helps infants, children and families reach maximum function at home, school and in the community. Adult occupational therapy helps adults who have suffered an injury, illness, or accident return to living a normal independent life.

Who may benefit from Occupational Therapy?

Commonly seen diagnoses

  • Autism-spectrum disorders
  • Brain injury

How occupational therapy treatment looks?

Occupational therapy services typically include:

  • An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals
  • Customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals
  • An outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan

Adult Speech Therapy

Speech Pathologists help people communicate and swallow better. Communication difficulties can result from events such as stroke, brain injury, brain surgery, or neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease. These communication difficulties can include speech difficulties known as dysarthria which include difficulty moving the lips, jaw, and tongue in order to say the words right, or with decreased breath support when speaking. Some other communication difficulties can include difficulties using the right words when trying to express one’s thoughts. This difficulty can result from aphasia or other cognitive-communication deficits including memory and attention that occur usually following a stroke, brain injury, brain surgery, or neurological disease.

Difficulty swallowing or dysphagia can occur with advancing age, after surgery or a stroke, changes in our body’s anatomy, or neurological diseases.

Neurologically Involved Patients, CVA's

Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. The devastating impairments following a neurological injury are often very difficult for both patient and family, but don’t have to be. We specialize on a rehabilitation vs. compensation approach founded on the ground breaking research of constraint induced therapy and the EXCITE Trials, where we attempt to increase function of the affected limbs to return to being a functional member of the body. We are able to apply this approach regardless of the acuity of the injury.

Industrial Rehabilitation

We recognize the need to get the injured worker back to work as soon as possible but safely. Specifics of the client’s job are taken into account, as well as the appropriate function during the rehabilitation process.
