Occupational Therapy assesses and treats physical and psychiatric conditions with the use of specific, purposeful activities intended to prevent disability and promote independent function in all aspects of daily life.
Occupational Therapists work with children who experience challenges with the necessary daily practical and social skills. The goal of the Occupational Therapist is to enable the child to be as physically, psychologically and socially independent as possible.
"Mukoviszidose-Therapie" offers individual occupational therapy services for children birth through adolescence.
Our Occupational therapy services typically include:
An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals
An outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan
Customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals
We work with the parents and caregivers and others to assess if a child has difficulties with practical and social skills. They evaluate the physical, psychological and social activities of each child, identify areas of dysfunction and involve the individual in a structured program of activity to overcome disability.
In the assessment that follows, the Therapist designs and implements programs with the best strategies to enable the child to maximize his/her potential.
Advantages of our Occupational therapy services:
For children, occupations are activities that enable them to:
Learn and develop life skills e.g., school activities
Be creative and/or have fun e.g., play
Thrive e.g., care for themselves and others
Our Therapists work with physicians, social workers, psychologists, and other therapists to create and provide the best treatment. They use qualitative and quantitative assessment methods, including standardized tests, as well as devices, to analyze and diagnose the nature and extent of dysfunction.
Our therapists are able to identify strengths and challenges you may have in everyday life, such as dressing or shopping and will help you work out practical solutions.
They are able to assist you in identifying goals that may help you with maintaining, regaining or improving your independence by employing different techniques, changing your environment and using new equipment.
