Adult Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps individuals with mental, emotional, or physical disabilities improve their quality of life by enhancing their ability to function in everyday activities such as self-care, work, leisure, and play.
Crawl Walk Jump Run offers a wide range of interventions and equipment to be utilized in the treatment of neurological diagnoses for adults. Our experienced team of Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) are skilled in the use of the Universal Exercise Unit (UEU) for out of the box interventions which are individualized to each patient’s specific functional goals.
Occupational Therapy Overview
Occupational therapy assists in the development of the skills required to carry out a person’s everyday living and/or to find methods to compensate for physical, cognitive, or emotive impairments.
An occupational therapist can assist in the development of fundamental self-care skills (dressing, eating, grooming), household or job activities (writing, computer use, meal preparation and planning, home and life organization), and leisure pursuits (hobbies, recreational activities, social outings). An occupational therapist will also assist the person in modifying the environment.
Assistive technology can be used to improve the outcomes of stroke or Parkinson’s Disease patients. Functional activities (dressing, grooming, meal preparation, household tasks), writing, computer use, return to work duties, social or leisure activities, and activities to stimulate or compensate for difficulties with concentration, dual attention, memory, decision making, and coordination can all be addressed.
A person with a brain injury may have difficulty speaking so the OT will teach other means of communication such as writing or signing. An occupational therapist can also teach other daily living skills for self-care and safety so that the person can perform these tasks independently.
Our clinicians are also ready to work with clients with neurological issues other than the examples listed above.
