    Occupational Therapy

    occupational-therapyOccupational therapists assess, utilize, and adapt everyday activities to improve function, enhance performance, promote health, and increase independence in those persons to whom they provide services. They work collaboratively with their clients to identify areas of need and to develop creative solutions to address these areas while respecting clients’ background and culture and valuing their quality of life.

    CWO’s team of Occupational therapy practitioners are available for:

    • Comprehensive sensory evaluations
    • Sensory diets
    • Training families and/or support staff
    • Setting up individual’s environment to make it conducive to learning

    Our evaluations are designed to answer some of the questions families have as they seek to provide services for and advocate for their child’s special needs at home, in the community, and at school. These evaluations, are individualized and are comprised of both standardized tests and functional observations of performance during a variety of activities that challenge the senses. In addition to the evaluation, a thorough interview is conducted with the family to help us understand how the child perceives and responds to varying sensations and learn what the family already knows works and does not work to support activities of daily living.

    From this evaluation, if treatment is warranted, a customized sensory diet is developed. A sensory diet is a planned and scheduled activity program designed to meet a child’s specific sensory needs. The goal of a sensory diet is to help the child maintain optimal levels of arousal and performance in the nervous system.

    Families and support staff are trained in the implementation of the sensory diet. This follow through outside of the clinic provides the individual with a more consistent sensory program. In addition to training families and support staff on sensory integration techniques, our occupational therapy practitioners will evaluate the individual’s environment and aid in setting up that environment to make it more conducive to learning.

    Our team of dedicated, highly qualified, occupational therapy practitioners and customer agents at CWO take pride in providing customers with exceptional sensory services.
