Occupational therapy helps children and adults develop the underlying foundational skills needed for play, socialization, learning, and participation in daily living activities.
Our occupational therapists use meaningful and motivating activities as vehicles to facilitate the development of sensory processing skills, motor-planning abilities, visual-motor skills, and social-emotional growth.
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted by occupational therapists in order to fully understand the needs of your child.
Goals and treatment plans are tailored to each child’s individual needs. An important aspect of our approach is to evaluate and support an individual’s functional performance across different environments. Occupational therapists are also available for home and school consultation as well as educational and IEP support.
The occupational therapists at Beth Osten & Associates are trained in a variety of treatment approaches including:

Group Therapy & Intensives
Other clinical service, methods, and programs we often use in conjunction with occupational therapy treatment.
These therapeutic play groups provide extra support in peer and group situations, providing a multi-disciplinary approach in order to increase success within a typical preschool.
Therapeutic Intensives are daily treatment sessions provided over a short-term, intensive format that are individualized to each client. Treatment disciplines include occupational therapy, physical therapy, and/or speech therapy.
Physical therapy can help children develop gross motor skills and promote active participation in the home, school, and community environments.
Speech-language pathology addresses a wide range of communicative needs in order to promote effective and functional interactions.
Child development specialists are credentialed through the Early Intervention program (EI) primarily treating children within the EI program.
