Occupational Therapy at Rainbow Road Therapies is about play.
Through therapeutic play, children develop the ability to be regulated, be organized within their bodies, generate ideas and plans of action, problem-solve, and form relationships.
Our OTs teach you to understand how sensation is perceived by your child, and how those perceptions affect attention, social and emotional abilities, motor skills, and learning. Your OT serves as a coach, educator, and role model while you actively participate in every session, and learn productive strategies for home, school, and the community during your child’s OT sessions.
Therapy outcomes are designed to focus on self-esteem, social confidence, and establishing joy-filled home and school lives. Generally, therapy includes strategies for modulation and discrimination of sensation as well as increased postural control and motor planning using a sensory integration approach as needed. We also incorporate parent-identified priorities for changes in daily functioning at home, at school, and/or in the community.
