We provide comprehensive evaluations for children birth to eighteen years of age to assess sensory integration, gross and fine motor proficiency, visual-motor integration, ocular-motor skills, and independence with activities of daily living.
Our evaluations are completed by Massachusetts Licensed Occupational Therapists who are certified through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
We provide one-on-one occupational therapy within our Sterling office, focusing on a child’s ability to independently engage in meaningful activities of daily living. This includes building skills like self-regulation, navigating playground equipment, catching a ball, coloring, handwriting, and tying shoes.
We target the development of these skills through skilled exercises and activities. It is our priority to be child and family-focused, therefore, goals and treatment techniques will be established with a collaborative approach.
Caregiver coaching and through home programming are also included after each session to foster continued growth outside of therapy.
At WPTC, we view ourselves as part of your child’s team. As such, we enjoy and encourage collaboration with all providers, across disciplines, in various settings.
We offer consultations to provide continuity and coordination of care, contribute to school-based program meetings, and review Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) for families to make recommendations.
The Evaluation Process
Call WPTC so we can guide you through our intake process, discuss your child, discuss your concerns, and schedule your child’s evaluation.
The day of the evaluation, you will complete evaluation forms including a developmental history.
Clinical observations and assessments tools will be utilized to evaluate your child’s therapy needs. Your child will be with their evaluating therapist for up to 60 minutes.
After the evaluation, the therapist will meet with you for up to 30 minutes to share initial evaluation findings and to help you determine next steps.
Your therapist will compile all information and analyze assessment data to finalize the evaluation report which will then be shared with you electronically. A post-evaluation phone call or in-person meeting can be scheduled to review the evaluation report in greater detail.
