Pediatric Occupational Therapy at Home
Occupational therapy gives children the skills they need to do daily living tasks in home and school environments. If your child has a condition or disability that affects their developmental, mental, physical or emotional capacities, our team aims to help them acquire and strengthen daily living skills.
How Does Occupational Therapy Work?
The primary goal of occupational therapy is to improve a child’s motor functions and reasoning. It can also assist with managing the permanent loss of function to help improve independence and foster a better quality of life.
Our occupational therapists develop a plan that can help support your child’s needs. We also make use of adaptive equipment as necessary. Occupational therapy aims to improve your child’s dexterity, strength, pattern discernment, visual acuity and other skills. We work with children who have a broad range of physical and developmental conditions, including:
- Muscular dystrophy
- Spinal cord injuries
- Cerebral palsy
Occupational therapists consider your child’s current abilities, lifestyle, goals and health requirements to design a customized treatment plan tailored to their unique needs.
Benefits of Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy can help your child develop crucial life skills and encourage:
- Improved sensory processing: If your child has a sensory processing disorder, they may have challenges with interpreting and responding to information from their senses. Whether your child over- or underreacts, our services can help them process and respond to these prompts.
- Additional self-help skills: Occupational therapy can help your child or teen learn the skills they need to succeed and gain independence. These can include writing, dressing, brushing teeth and hair and using the restroom.
- Increased fine and gross motor skills: Our occupational therapists will help your child learn skills that use their fingers, forearms, legs, arms and torsos. Learning these skills can help some children overcome challenges associated with activities like biking, walking and other movements.
- Enhanced communication and awareness: In-home occupational therapy for kids with autism or related conditions can help them acquire skills relating to coordination, body awareness and communication.
Overview of TLC Pediatric Therapy Services
At TLC Pediatric Therapy, we provide speech, physical, occupational and applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy. We use evidence-backed practices and techniques to serve children between birth and 21 years of age.
Our practitioners understand that each child has unique needs, goals and abilities. We provide customized treatment plans for each child or teen to help them reach their goals and acquire as many skills as possible.
TLC Pediatric Therapy professionals complete services from your Orlando area home. We will travel to you, perform an assessment and provide therapy in a comfortable, familiar environment.
How do we start?
Our services begin with an intake questionnaire where you discuss primary concerns for your child. The next step is a formal behavior assessment/evaluation which will be conducted with your child and a treatment plan designed with the family. This will include identifying your child’s strengths, preferences, and other specific skill deficits or needs. Each program is customized to each child, and will also include family goals and priorities. Once the plan is complete, authorization from your insurance provider must be obtained prior to treatment beginning.
