In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
The Occupational Therapist will design a plan of care to address social limitations, sensory integration, neuromuscular reeducation, handwriting, fine motor skill development, gross motor coordination, functional impairments, self care skills and help promote overall wellness.
Sessions are usually 60 minutes. Most patients are seen once or twice a week. The number of sessions depends on what your child's current needs.
The length of time a client is in therapy depends on the nature of his/her communication, motor or sensory challenges, as well as, the goals that you and your child’s therapist would like to address. Some children have specific challenges that can be improved in a set course of time. For others, it is an on-going learning process.

Please provide your insurance information and doctor’s order before the initial evaluation. With the proper information provided before your scheduled session, we can typically contact the insurance company to determine an estimation of what your plan will or will not cover. This estimation is provided as a courtesy by MPPT. Insurance companies vary considerably; therefore, we try to estimate your coverage in good faith, but cannot guarantee coverage or payment amounts by your insurance company. We recommend that you verify these estimations with your insurance company.
Also, you can call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to inquire about your child's plan/benefits.
If for any reason you are unable to keep your scheduled therapy appointment, please contact your therapist as soon as you are aware of the need to cancel or reschedule. Please inform your therapist of any scheduled trips, camps, etc. that may require a missed appointment.
If your therapist arrives to your home or your child’s daycare facility and he/she is not available for therapy this is considered a “NO SHOW.” It is also consider a “NO SHOW” if you are not present within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment time at the outpatient clinic. If for any reason your child has 3 “no shows” within a 6 month time period, he/she may be discharged from services.
If your therapist is unable to see your child on the scheduled day and time, a phone call will be made to the contact number provided on the 'Consent to Treat' form. Typically this phone call is made within 24 hours of the appointment or at the earliest time your therapist is aware of the need to cancel an appointment. In the case of an emergency, every attempt will be made to contact you at the number provided below prior to the scheduled therapy time on the day of therapy.
It is very important for your child’s progress that therapy be attended on a consistent basis. Excessive cancellations resulting in <75% attendance over a 3 month time period will result in discharge.
