⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Landon and Xander work together during their occupational therapy session focusing on social skills such as turn-taking, sharing, and conflict resolution. 

Did you know that there are a variety of strategies that occupational therapy practitioners employ to support a child to establish better social skills, including:
• Relating to the child's interests
• Assessing the child's environment
• Simplyfying tasks
• Role play
• Modeling

It is important for children to develop the skills they need to play and relate appropriately with their peers, as these interpersonal skills help children learn how to deal with conflict or challenging incidents, better understand their emotions and social roles, learn how to solve problems, and adjust to change.

Picky Eaters & Problem Feeders

🌳Picky Eaters & Problem Feeders🌳

Is your child a picky eater or problem feeder? We understand the mealtime stressors, worry over nutrition, grocery store meltdowns, and desperation for your child to just eat. We are dedicated to help find the underlying reason why your child is having these challenges to get addressed by the right specialists. Occupational Therapy Providers are the right fit for children with sensory challenges who hate certain textures in their mouth, avoid things on their skin like messy/sticky and just the look at certain foods cause a melt down. OTs also help when there is an adaptation needed because of a motor skill or deformity so a child can help physically feed themselves such as a spoon with a built up handle, plate that sticks to the table or other so many other adaptive feeding equipment. Speech Language Pathologists are the best fit when a child has difficulty swallowing (choking, coughing, gaging) or poor oral motor skills and mouth strength that make chewing  and moving food around in their mouth difficult. Behavioral Therapy helps to break down those barriers when your child gets stuck on certain foods, has tantrums at mealtime, or has developed undesirable behaviors around mealtime (throwing, avoidance etc) without a physical cause that OT & ST can address. Mental Health Therapy addresses the emotional aspect of feeding that often develops when a physical problem has occurred. Children who have has pain of acid reflux, a choking experience, body dysmorphia and more have have developed fears around eating. Often children with complex feeding challenges may need a team of difference therapists to address all aspects of their feeding. 

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Makenzie achieved a HUGE milestone today. Makenzie is a very particular eater, which she has always been. In the past, she has been unwilling to try different foods and simply states "I don't like that", even if she has never tried the item before. Over our last several sessions, we have talked about all the reasons trying new foods can be exciting! After our previous session, Makenzie stated for the first time that she would be willing to try a new meat. So, today we did just that! Makenzie tried the steak cooked rare, medium-rare and well-done. While she did not like the medium-rare or the well-done steak, she LOVED the rare steak and ate every bite!!! I am so proud of you for passing this MILESTONE!

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Nicholas did not like brushing his teeth when he started ABA Therapy. He would only allow me to brush his teeth for a few seconds before he was ready to move on and go somewhere else. Now, he allows me to brush his teeth for at least 10 seconds. He also started holding the brush by himself and brushed his teeth independently today. He deserves the best tasting toothpaste! Way to go, Nicholas!!!

✨Staff Success✨

 A client and I have been working over the last month with tooth brushing. Before we worked on this area, he was having difficulty with the feeling of the brush touching his back teeth and often had gagging. We are working toward a bigger goal of being able to get our teeth cleaned at the dentist! Today, we were able to brush our teeth fully with no gagging or aversions to the feeling of his manual brush. I am so proud of this client and all his hard work!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ✅ Does your child need help with brushing their teeth?

Nicholas went to the dentist office today. He sat in the actual cleaning chair. I only held his one hand. (Usually I have to bear hug his arms and legs while sitting in a chair) He copied me when I showed him to open his mouth wide. The hygienist was able to brush all his teeth with only 2 breaks, which he signed for when I asked if he needed a break. She was also able to put the vitamins on his teeth even though he HATED the taste. When the dentist came in, she was able to actually look inside his mouth with the mirror. She was also new so he had never seen her before, but even after waiting he still did so good. No pinching, biting, or kicking!!!

Potty Training

🌳Potty Training🌳

Potty training is a huge life skill. Not only does it increase the quality of life for you child - It increased quality of life for the whole family! Occupational Therapy Providers are experts in life skills. OTs break down the underlying reason why your child is having difficulty with potty training. Can they notice the sensation of when they go? Do they have the physical control to make it to he potty? Do they have the structures in place to set them up for success? There are many foundation skills they help with toilet training - OT has a great potential for help! Behavioral Therapy also help with potty training! Behavior therapy sets up a reinforcement stroke so they have lots of opportunities to practice and get positively reinforced when they succeed. The more a child succeeds in this area the more they're willing to do it!

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

One of Winston's goal's since starting his journey at TheraTree, has been to be able to sit on the potty for two minutes with a reinforcer, (toy, game, etc.). Winston has been working on this goal every day for several months, but was experiencing fear when placed on an adult sized toilet. Winston would sit on the toilet with or without a reinforcer for several minutes, but would not use the restroom and would instead hold onto the sides of the toilet. So, the Clinician advised Winston's parents that Winston may show an increased improvement if he had a potty seat/potty chair. Winston's parents happily obliged and brought him a potty chair to therapy. I am ecstatic to announce that on the very first potty break trial, Winston peed on the potty!! You amaze us everyday little dude!! We are so very proud of you and all your accomplishments! 🤩

🌳Tolerating Touch & Textures🌳

Does your child have a hard time wearing certain texture clothing like jeans, underwear, socks, school uniforms or more? It doesn't have to be a fight! Make your dressing routines so much easier with Sensory Integration Interventions through Occupational Therapy. Through OT, Children who have trouble processing tactile sensory information can re-train their nervous system to tolerate these common textures that we usually have to deal with every day. We understand how stressful it can be when your child just doesn't wand to wear ___ and a meltdown ensues. Our OT providers are trained in sensory interventions that can help!

Self Regulation

🌳Self Regulation🌳

Does your child have difficulty regulating their emotions or level of energy? Do they get upset suddenly or their energy is WAY too high or low for the situation? Occupational Therapy Providers have a unique insight into how sensory integration has an effect on a person's state of arousal (how high or low energy they have). OTs determine your child's distinct sensory profile and create opportunities for their sensory needs to be met so they have the just right energy level for the occasion. This is individualized to your child and a variety of strategies may be used to find the just right fit. Mental Health Therapy can help with self-regulation as well. Mental Health Therapists use a different way to promote self/emotional regulation. This is accomplished through insightful self reflection. They help the child or youth really understand the warning signs for dysregulation and what they can do about it. This cognitive (versus physiological) based approach is an excellent compliment to help children master this skill.

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Here, Dani is all smiles as she uses the ball pit to help self-regulate at the beginning of her therapy session! Way to go Dani!
💡Self-regulation is a child’s ability to monitor and manage their energy states, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that are appropriate and produce a positive learning environment.
💡 Three things that can affect a child’s self-regulation are:
1️⃣ How they interpret sensory information from their internal/external environment.
2️⃣ Their current level of heightened sensitivity, which can be high or low.
3️⃣ How effective they are at self-calming strategies.

Feed & Anxiety

🌳Fear & Anxiety🌳

Does your child get anxious about changes? Are they extra clingy and upset when it comes time to be dropped of somewhere safe or anticipating new experiences? We have serval ways to get to the bottom of these fears. It first starts with identifying the underlying reasons for the fear, then we decide the appropriate or complimentary therapy. Occupational Therapy helps with fears that are sensory based or prevent the everyday task a child needs to do (try new foods, transition to new places etc). Mental Health Therapy uses a more cognitive approach for the child to self reflect on the fear, process it, and create ways to cope with the fear. Behavior Therapy also helps in more severe and complex cases. ABA uses their ability to have more time with patients to give frequent opportunities for growth and reward success. 

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Great success! Lakeyn was very happy to get into the ball pit/crash pads. She was smiling and wanted to play with the game. She had been working on getting comfortable for 2 weeks to play in the ball pit/crash pads area. So proud of her growth in this area! You rock!!!!

Emotional Behavioral

Emotional–Behavioral Needs

Occupational therapy practitioners have training in mental health and are well-suited to address children’s emotional and behavioral needs as they relate to everyday activities and social interaction. For example, occupational therapy practitioners help children develop the ability to cope with challenges, calm down when frustrated, defuse anger, and manage impulses in order to succeed at individual tasks and collaborative interactions at home, at school, and in the community.As children grow older, skills for success in independent living become essential. Occupational therapy practitioners address self-determination and self-advocacy skills, along with transition from school into adult roles.

Communication

Expressive Communication
Expressive Communication

🌳Expressive Communication🌳

Does your child get frustrated that they can't request their wants and need? Does this lead to a meltdowns because others around them don't understand? Speech Therapy helps with expressive communication. They identify what is keeping a child from being able to express themselves. This reason could be a oral motor reason (moving their mouth in the right way), it could be praxis (motor planing to move their mouth in the right sequence), or many other reason that's keeping them from communicating. Behavior Therapy also helps by giving more opportunities to make requests and respond to fruition in a behaviorally appropriate way. They reward the successful actions so as a child's language is emerging they are encouraged to continue to make the verbal request vs a melt down out of frustration. 

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Winston has been working on using his verbal mands to request he needs to stop an activity, leave an area, wants someone to stop a behavior, etc. In the past, Winston would pull you by the hand to what he wanted/needed and would cry when he wanted someone to stop a behavior. He has continued to improve with every session, but today we must stop to give him some extra praise as he requested "out" for the first time when he was ready to be removed from the swing without any prompts from his therapist! Way to go, bud!

Fine Motor skills

🌳Fine Motor Skills🌳

Does your child have difficulty using their hands? This might look like holding on to and manipulating small items, poor handwriting, cutting/folding paper etc. This usually translates over into their self care skills like butting, zipping, and shoe tying.   Occupational Therapy helps with training the small muscles of the hand to become more precise in movement and stronger so your child can engaging in the world without physical limitations.  Physical Therapy can also help develop these fine motor skills. Often when a child has a fine motor skill challenge they also have a gross motor challenge too. So OT & PT are the dynamic duo to take team both of these areas of optimal function!

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Landon is working on a snowman craft during his occupational therapy session focusing on his fine motor precision goal! Great job Landon!!
💡Fine motor precision is defined as the hands ability to coordinate an efficient and targeted movement of the hands with a precise goal in mind. Fine motor precision is important for everyday activities, such as buttoning a shirt, being able to write words right on a line, being able to pierce a small piece of food with a fork.

Body Movement

🌳Navigating Body Movement🌳

Does your child have fear or is simply clumsy moving around? Do they frequently bump into things or flat out avoid certain situations that require certain movements? There are a few reasons why a child might do this.  Occupational Therapy can help with the sensory integration foundation needed for this skill. Children must have good proprioception (awareness of muscle movement and force) and vestibular (perception of their body moving in space) in order to navigate their environment. OT works on these underlying sensory skills for successful movement.   Physical Therapy can also help develop the gross motor skills to do this. Sometimes a child's lack of ability causes fear because they see they may get hurt doing something. When a child gains control over their movement, they gain the confidence to move smoothly in their environment too!

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

So proud of you Kendall! Look how you are moving over the crash pads in your way. You are showing no fear! Look at your determination! You are a great encouragement to all! You never give up.

This can be a sign of poor upper body strength.  Occupational Therapy can help with strength and the function task that their poor strength in impacting (dressing, play, desk work).   Physical Therapy are the experts in building up strength. They create exercises and physical challenges so that your child builds muscle tone. Often OT and PT are the dynamic duo to address upper body strength in different and complimentary ways!

Educational Needs

Educational Needs

Educational needs are address through school based services. TheraTree contract with select local schools to provide students in preschool, and elementary, middle, and high school to support successful learning, appropriate behavior, and participation in daily school routines and activities. School based services are provided under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, or the Americans with Disabilities Act for students with disabilities, or as part of a multi-tiered problem-solving process for general education students (e.g., Response to Intervention, early intervening services).Practitioners also collaborate with teachers, parents, and education personnel on ways to support student learning throughout the school environment.


While insurance does not traditionally cover educationally based services, there are some skill set overlaps. Therapy can address the foundation performance skills that make things at school difficult for children.

Pre-Writing

🌳Prewriting🌳

Do you know all the skills needed before a child can learn handwriting? There's a lot!   Occupational Therapy helps with many of these performance skills. First a child must have good body stability and posture. Red flags include slouching, fatigue to sit up, and complaints that may sound indirect at first because they're tired (I'm bored, this is dumb, I don't want to do this). Then a child must have good shoulder and arm control - or else their fine motor skills won't make a difference here! A child must be able to visually track shape/color/size on the paper in front of them - then from another source like a book or board - in order to replicate letters, spacing, and sizing. Finally their fine motor skills, hand dexterity, and hand strength come into play. Writing develops in phases of shapes first: vertical lines, circles, horizontal lines, intersecting lines etc. These is a developmentally appropriate order to learning theses shapes! OT assess and look for all of these skills. It's notable that many times insurance will not pay for educationally based goals (like handwriting) however we absolutely work on the underlying skills that are need for it in the outpatient setting. Behavior Therapy is a fantastic opportunity to support these skills. Behavior Therapy has the gift of time to practice and refine these skills over and over until your child can master it. They are also the experts at dealing with the behaviors that get in the way of handwriting (I'm bored, this is dumb, I don't want to do this). OT & ABA is a great dynamic duo for developing pre-writing skills!

Elijah came to TheraTree struggling to take his time with any task, even if it was a fun coloring activity. In the past, Elijah would scribble back and forth on his paper coloring the entire page one color to get it finished as quickly as possible in order to go the gym or "do something fun". We have been slowly working every session to enhance his willingness to take his time on his work. Today not only did Elijah color in the lines of his coloring page, but he also had to color each section according to the number chart, which he did flawlessly!!! I am so proud of you, Elijah for accomplishing this ENORMOUS goal!! You are a SUPERSTAR 💫 I cannot wait to see what goal you will crush next! 😁

Matching

🌳Matching🌳

Does your child have the ability to match things? There could be several reasons why this is difficult.   Occupational Therapy helps with the visual motor skills needed for matching.  Behavior Therapy helps with the learning process of matching and the behaviors that can come out when a task is frustrating. Speech Therapy helps with the language barrier of what it means to match objects up and follow directions. Let us help get to the bottom of why these skills are difficult so we can find the right therapy for you! 

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Winston has been struggling for several weeks to match in an array. When prompted to do so, Winston would display spurts of defiance, in order to avoid completing the task. We tried this task in several different ways, but Winston would simply lay in the floor and ignore all prompts. Then today happened! I am proud to announce that after struggling for several weeks with matching in an array, today he matched in an array ten times!! Way to go, bud! You are a ROCKSTAR 🌟

Numbers

⭐️Milestone Moment⭐️

Throughout Elijah's time here at TheraTree he has struggled with counting numbers in the correct order, could not identify numbers past twelve, and refused to try to learn them, because it took "too long" and he "can't do it". After spending several weeks working on positive self talk, identifying the reasons why taking our time can be important, and finding effective coping skills that work for Elijah; We were ready to begin working on identifying numbers past twelve this week. We began working on these numbers together three sessions ago, and then in our last session, Elijah was redirected to independent work. Well, after just four sessions, today Elijah was able to identify his numbers all the way to thirty! We are sooo utterly proud of you, bud!! 🌟 

You have made such significant strides in your few short months here at TheraTree and your growth is a testament to our mission to grow minds, bodies, and spirits. 🤍

Developmental Needs

The primary occupations of young children are play and interacting with caregivers. Occupational therapists evaluate children’s development and provide intervention to improve skills and/or modify environments when concerns arise about a child’s functional performance. Some examples are:facilitating movement to help a child sit independently or crawl; helping a child learn to follow 2- or 3-step instructions; helping a child develop the ability to dress independently; helping a child learn to cope with disappointment or failure; reducing extraneous environmental noise for a child who is easily distracted; building skills for sharing, taking turns, and playing with peers; and helping a child develop the ability to use toys and materials in both traditional and creative manners.
