What is Occupational Therapy and how it can help you?
Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.
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.
Occupational therapy services typically include:
- an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals,
- customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
- an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science.
Do I need a prescription from a doctor before starting occupational therapy?
No. You don't need your child's physician's referral for our private pay services.

What Ages do you Treat?
We specialize in treating children from birth to 6 years. However we do treat some older children with specialized challenges. Please contact us directly if you have an older child.
What can I expect from an Evaluation?
In the initial evaluation, the therapist will perform an assessment to identify how we can best meet your and your physician’s concerns. The therapist will then discuss the results with you and review the recommended treatment options. If the therapist recommends physical or occupational therapy, you will be given instructions about how to schedule appointments. We will also communicate our findings with your child’s referring physician or certified nurse practitioner.
How long is each session?
Recommendations for the appropriate frequency of treatment sessions will be given by the treating therapist and may change over time, depending on the needs of the child and family. Although we will share our best clinical opinions, we respect and value your perspective as a parent.
Do you accept health insurance?
Although we are not providers for any insurance companies at this moment and do not accept payment from companies for services, we have had many families over the years that have been able to get some level of reimbursement for therapy. We highly recommend that all families who will be submitting claims for insurance coverage contact their provider to find out what their specific plan covers and the process required to get coverage.
Your monthly invoice will include dates of service, CPT and diagnostic codes. When needed, we will gladly share pertinent information about our therapy services (plan of care and/or completion of insurance forms) at no charge. However, for requests that require more than 15 minutes of time, an additional charge will be incurred.
Feedback from families over the years has indicated that the keys to insurance reimbursement are:
- Understanding your policy
- Keeping notes on dates/times/contact person/information shared for any communication with your company
- Following up and not giving up
- The squeaky door gets fixed!
How does payment work?
- We bill at the time of the beginning of the session. You can also opt in for our payment package options to pay in advance and get great discounts.
- if you need to update a card or have any questions about billing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I photograph or video-graph sessions?
Please ask before taking a photo or recording. You may be asked to wait until a task is finished, or to assure that no other patients are in the area, or to allow the therapist to step out of the picture. Photos and videos of therapy should not be posted on social media sites such as Facebook.
Do I need to be present for my child’s therapy session?
A parent or legal guardian must be present at your child’s initial therapy evaluation; this is important so that you can give consent for your child to be treated. Being present at the evaluation will give the therapist a chance to speak with you about your concerns and goals for your child.
The most important thing you can do for your child is to make sure a parent or caregiver attends every therapy session, even if your child is a teenager. One of our primary goals is to give your entire family skills and knowledge to help your child gain the greatest benefit from therapy.
If absolutely necessary, teens may attend their therapy sessions without their legal guardian present, provided they are responsible young adults and the therapist is in agreement.
OT Park Box Related
What's in the box?
Every month you will receive a surprise assortment of many different age-appropriate activities with a detailed instruction booklet - that is our own activity guide designed for that box. Examples include activity worksheets, pencils, sensory toys, activity cards, play-doh, colors, putty, a kid’s book, infant’s mobile, wooden toys, textured tactile toys/ fidgets, craft activities that promote gross and fine motor skills, sensory-motor, handwriting, visual motor and activities of daily living skills, and much more!
Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter: @otparkbox to see photos and videos of past boxes, as well as sneak peeks to upcoming boxes.
What if my child is unable to do the activities?
This is not unusual - and the OT Park Box is designed to account for it. If your child is unable to perform any of the activities mentioned in the box, then take a break, and try repeating it in a day or two. Children at this age normally learn through repetition, and it is when your child repeatedly engages in the activity and the skills it uses, that your child is actually developing!
Who can benefit from The OT Park Box?
We offer boxes and subscriptions for a wide range of ages and interests, from infants (0 months) through toddlers of up to 3 years.
What age group are these boxes for?
0-3 years old. However, this is just a general guideline as our children with special needs have different levels of independence and various learning levels and developmental abilities. You may need to provide more guidance & assistance to your child for certain contents in the box (e.g., a craft/ fine motor based activity.) However, many of the items in OT Park Box are appropriate for children of the ages that the box suggests.
Can my child use the ot park box independently?
No. We strictly recommend OT Park Box activities must be performed under parental supervision.
Is this a therapy box for kids?
OT Park is NOT a therapeutic box. We do not provide therapy in the box. These boxes are curated solely for the purpose of fun, enjoyment, and practice of various skills that are appropriate for specific age group depending on your subscription.
