Occupational Therapy(OT) is a health service that focuses on long-term health, well being, and participation in activities that are most important to our patient’s everyday lives. We take a holistic and unique approach to care that is backed by scientific research. OT’s can be found in hospitals, school settings, nursing facilities, home care, and outpatient based clinics like Sallyz.
An occupational therapist can work with a variety of diagnoses and in many areas of difficulty
that impact functional participation. Some of these include:
If you are unsure if your child would benefit from OT services, please call us at (860)
Our evaluations are tailored to each individual child. We encourage and enjoy caregiver participation during the process. An initial evaluation will include a detailed look at the child’s birth, medical, and developmental history, standardized assessments chosen based on individual concerns, and skilled observation of play. Evaluation results are used to determine long and short term goals, and guide treatment activities.
Treatment is guided by the goals developed from your child’s evaluation. Treatment is individualized, child driven, and often play based – because play is a child’s full time job! An occupational therapist is able to find ways to help children develop or strengthen skills needed for everyday function while using activities that the child finds meaningful and most of all fun. Treatment time and duration are determined by your child’s OT based on their goals and concerns.
We are currently accepting clients from birth to 18yrs old at the Center.
No, you do not have to be an ABA client at Sallyz. You can receive ONLY OT services.
