Occupational Therapy at Bilingual Pediatric Therapies
Occupational therapy is a dynamic field that focuses on assessing and enhancing the daily living and work skills of individuals facing physical, mental, or cognitive challenges. Our dedicated occupational therapists are committed to helping clients develop, recover, or maintain their independence while addressing environmental barriers that may hinder their participation in everyday activities.
At Bilingual Pediatric Therapies, we embrace a client-centered approach, placing the utmost importance on working collaboratively with clients to achieve their specific goals.
Occupational therapy interventions encompass a holistic approach, which includes adapting to the environment, modifying tasks, teaching essential skills, and educating clients and their families. Our primary objective is to empower individuals to actively participate in and excel at their daily activities, particularly those that hold personal significance.
Our occupational therapists are not alone in this journey. They collaborate closely with professionals from various disciplines, including physical therapy, speech therapy, nursing, social work, and the community, to ensure comprehensive care for our clients.
It’s important to note that the term “Occupational therapy” can be misleading. Contrary to the common misconception that it primarily involves vocational counseling and job training, our profession centers around promoting skill development and independence in all aspects of daily life. For adults, this might encompass self-care, homemaking, leisure activities, and work. When it comes to children, their “occupations” revolve around playing with friends, personal hygiene, fine motor skills like cutting with scissors, artistic expression through drawing, and much more.
At Bilingual Pediatric Therapies, we specialize in a team-based approach to pediatric therapy, specifically tailored to address developmental disabilities. These disabilities include, but are not limited to, autism, down syndrome, cognitive delays, and cerebral palsy. Our mission is to empower children and their families to thrive and succeed in every aspect of life.
