Our Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) use meaningful activities (occupations) to help clients participate in activities to promote physical and mental health and well-being. Occupational Therapy addresses motor, cognitive, socio/emotional, sensory, feeding and other aspects of performance. These treatments aid in the improvement of skills that help them perform tasks that are vital to their day-to-day occupations.
Utilizing a variety of formal and informal assessment tools, our Occupational Therapists can assess children and youth who present with a variety of physical, cognitive, socio/emotional, sensory, oral-motor, fine motor, self-care needs, and disabilities. TES conducts Occupational therapy assessments for children and youth who present with a variety of diagnosis including Autism, Neurological-Developmental disorders, Genetic conditions, Attention Deficit and/or Hyperactivity disorders, etc.
Our OT services utilize various treatment methodologies, including Sensory Integration (SI), Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT), Developmental Approach, and Motor Learning, to treat and address skills such as motor coordination, visual perception, handwriting, oral-motor, feeding sensory processing and modulation, play, self-care, neuromuscular function, etc.
Together with parents and caregivers, school administrators, teachers, and other therapists, our Occupational therapists address developmental motor milestones; develop skills to complete daily living skills; and assist in participation in age-appropriate daily routines. Our OTs train and collaborate with other therapists, school staff and families to determine each client’s goals and to customize intervention to improve each child’s ability to perform daily activities at his or her optimal level.
