What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy focuses on helping people with physical, sensory, or cognitive delays be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. Occupational therapists strive to enhance each client’s self-esteem and sense of accomplishment by promoting increased participation in the activities that are most meaningful to them. With young children, occupational therapy often focuses helping the client master skills needed to complete basic self-care tasks or on improving attention and self-regulation that is needed to engage in basic play and learning activities. Occupational therapy with older children and teenagers typically focuses on helping clients master more dynamic skills while working to establish positive habits and routines that are necessary for maximum independence.
How do I pay for Occupational Therapy?
Meaningful Day Services is in-network with most private insurance companies and Medicaid plans. When occupational therapy services are denied by insurance and Medicaid providers, Medicaid Waiver may be utilized as a funding source. Our team of insurance specialists are available to assist families with their individual questions about each funding source.
