Patty specializes in helping children with developmental conditions and adults with chronic disease participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
Occupational therapy services typically include: an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals, customized intervention to improve performance in daily activities and reach goals, and an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
Therapy may also include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person/family is an integral part of the therapy team.
