How BCOTB Can Help
Occupational Therapist provide therapy to meet the needs of our clients in the areas of activities of daily living, sensory processing skills, visual perceptual/visual motor, fine motor and gross motor skills, attention span, and handwriting abilities. The therapist will then perform comprehensive developmental and musculoskeletal evaluations to identify areas of difficulties and establish a baseline status. Working closely with family members, educators and the BCOTB behavioral therapist, the Occupational therapist will design a treatment program directed toward meeting specific measurable long and short-term goals intended to improve functional performance.
