What is Pediatric OT?
At Building Blocks, our Occupational Therapy team helps enable children to live their life to the fullest by helping them gain functional age-appropriate skills relevant to their daily life.
We can work on anything from helping a child use an open cup to drink, to dressing skills, to handwriting, to bike riding, and many things in between!
We use therapeutic activities and skilled interventions to address your child’s specific goals.
Each goal is customized to improve your child’s ability to perform daily activities, while also considering their performance skills/abilities and context.
Therapeutic activities are chosen by our Occupational Therapist with careful care and consideration for your child’s needs.
Along with quality therapeutic care for each child, parent involvement and education is very important to us and we very much value each parent’s insight.
This includes the initial assessment of your child. The Occupational Therapist works alongside the parent/caregiver to assess your child’s individual abilities, needs and concerns related to their daily life. The assessment may include standardized procedures and consultation.
Based on the results of the assessment, we determine if therapy is appropriate for the child. If so, short and long-term goals are discussed, relevant to your child’s developmental stage, habits, roles and environment.
This includes therapeutic activities tailored to address your child’s goals. Intervention strategies are designed to facilitate performance of everyday tasks and adaptation of settings for your child’s environment. Examples include teaching new skills or techniques, providing tools to facilitate independence in a specific area, and providing resources to remove barriers.
Why come to Building Blocks?
A HISTORY OF SUCCESS
The number one reason we are unique is our constant strive for collaboration. Collaboration amongst parents/caregivers, our team of individuals at the clinic, as well as your child’s school team/other professionals on their team.
We value ethical treatment, and are constantly researching to make sure we are using the most updated and best practices.
We view your child as a whole person, we don’t just look at their deficit. This means we take into consideration background, environmental factors, values, and roles that may impact daily living skills.
