Pediatric Services

Hospital to Home to School

Occupational therapy can help children with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.  As consultants, we may start with communicating with the hospital or inpatient rehabilitation team to facilitate a safe transition home.  Once home, the occupational therapist may opt to perform standardized testing to assist in developing a community based treatment plan.  The OT will work closely with the parents to set up other community services and supports that may be required to return to school, e.g. tutoring, adaptive devices, other therapies, etc.
