At OuTcomes Therapy, occupational therapy goals are set with caregivers and therapists as a team. These goals are functional, and individual to each family’s current needs. We begin with a comprehensive evaluation, and meet with parents to review findings prior to the beginning of therapy sessions.

Based on research as well as our own clinical experience, our sessions are focused on self-esteem, socialization, and self-regulation (Cohn, Miller, Tickle-Degnen, 2000; Cohn, Kramer, Schub, & May-Benson, 2014; Schaaf, et al., 2010). We use relationship-based methods to ensure that your child feels supported, while being continually challenged to progress in goal-focused areas.

We believe strongly that parent involvement is the key to success in therapy. While therapists may require some one-on-one time to develop a strong relationship with your child, we encourage parents to be involved in the process. Research indicates that parents will be more successful in supporting children when they have a deep understanding of how sensory processing challenges impact function, as well as how sensory strategies can be used as supports within different environments and contexts (Hinojosa, 1990 ; Humphry, 2002). For this reason we recommend regular parent meetings, where parents and therapists can collaborate to support progress outside of therapy.

Therapy sessions are child-driven and fun, but subtly structured so that your child is challenged while always successful in completing each activity. The emphasis of these sessions is on developing automatic and appropriate responses, to increase success in daily activities and develop meaningful relationships (Greenspan, Wieder & Simons, 1998; Parham, et al., 2011). During each session, your occupational therapist serves as coach, educator, and role model so that you may participate actively and learn strategies for home, school, and the community.
