Occupational Therapy Treatment
Occupational Therapy (OT) is a service that enables people across the lifespan to function as successfully and independently as possible within their various occupations, or meaningful activities of their daily lives. When viewing each patient, OT practitioners draw upon required coursework in the field, including anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, neurology, human development, psychology, activity analysis and clinical reasoning.
An evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science, OT uses a holistic approach focusing on health promotion, prevention, acquisition of new skills, regaining of previous skills lost through injury, illness or disability, maintenance or attainment of independence, and provision of supports and adaptations due to physical or cognitive changes.
Occupational Therapy services typically include an individualized evaluation, customized intervention to reach patient-prioritized goals, and an outcomes evaluation to ensure goal attainment or to make changes to the intervention plan.
At SIGHT Multispecialty Center, our Occupational Therapy team has advanced training in assessing and treating the critical underlying areas of development that are directly linked to higher level skills such academic learning, appropriate social participation, and activities of daily living.
With the unique opportunity to work closely with a team of professionals comprised of specialists within the areas of optometry, Vision Therapy, and mind/body therapies, our occupational therapists are able to continuously collaborate on best practices for improving each patient’s quality of life.
Working from a sensory-integration frame of reference and tapping into the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections (neuroplasticity), our therapists utilize a variety of modalities and treatment techniques to improve sensory processing in order to optimize sensory regulation.
We help you to understand how a well-regulated sensory system made up of various components of processing contributes to important outcomes in social-emotional, physical and motor, communication, self-care, cognitive, and adaptive skill development and maintenance.
We work with patients with a variety of conditions including:
- Sensory Processing deficits
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Attention Deficit Disorders
- Developmental Delays
- Coordination Disorders
- Post-Concussion Syndrome
- Oculomotor Dysfunction
- Visual-Vestibular processing deficits
- Fine and gross motor skill deficits
- Visual motor deficits
- Cognitive and perceptual deficits
- Decreased core strength and stability
- Retention of primary reflexes
