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.

Depending on the age of the child and insurance provider, treatment sessions can be held in patients’ homes, daycares, preschools and at our clinic.
Please provide your insurance information and doctors order before the initial evaluation. We work with two professional billers who will file claims with your insurance company. With the proper information provided before your scheduled session, we can typically contact the insurance company to determine what your plan will or will not cover. This ensures you will be aware of any out-of-pocket expenses prior to delivery of the service. However, please be aware that there are some plans that do not show patient charges until after the claim has been processed.
Also, you can call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to inquire about your child's plan/benefits.
We ask you notify your providing therapist as soon as possible if scheduling conflicts arise.
If our 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 considered a “NO SHOW” if you are not present within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment time to the outpatient clinic. If for any reason your child has 3 “no shows” within a 6-month time period he/she will be discharged from services with Mount Pleasant Pediatric Therapy.
Excessive cancellations will be handled on an individual basis.
It is crucial to uphold and comply with doctors’ orders in order to make progress toward your child's goals and objectives.
