"Your Occupational Therapist may only see your child for an hour a week. Please work with your child's OT and find out what areas you can be working on at home. The more we can do together, the more it benefits the child" Britt Collins M.S. OTR/L
This 45 minute program introduces parents to the benefits of Occupational Therapy (OT). Learn how OT can help with problem behavior and/or sensory dysfunction. Occupational Therapist, Britt Collins, combines OT and ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) to teach parents, educators and caregivers what they can do at home to help with desensitizing and reprogramming how the child's brain processes sensory information.
Britt guides us through this program in both clinical and easy to follow terms. She also provides families with a guideline on how to integrate "sensory diets" into their home. This program includes sections on:
- gravitational insecurity
- motor planning
- vestibular dysfunction
- proprioception dysfunction
- tactile dysfunction
- visual motor
- oral motor
- organization of behavior
