Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. The word “occupation” means an activity that “occupies” our time. Children’s occupation is play, which provides the building blocks and foundation for learning. Hopebridge provides an environment rich in opportunities for this learning to take place. Highly-trained therapists address sensory processing as well as fine motor, perceptual, cognitive, handwriting, self care, feeding and social skills. Our centers are equipped with a full functioning bathroom, kitchen and laundry room to address all these skills.
At Hopebridge, we are committed to providing your child with the highest level of service. Our licensed OTR’s and COTA’s have experience working with a variety of diagnosis and conditions and participate in ongoing training and continuing education to ensure that we are offering the most current and innovative treatment approaches. If your child is receiving multiple services, we will participate in team meetings to ensure that the multiple facets of your child’s care are coordinated.
Quarterly staffing meetings will be conducted with all disciplines to address the individual needs of every client. Quarterly Plan of Care (POC) reports are written by the occupational therapist, which are then sent to the referring physician for signature and authorization to continue treatment. These reports will also be given to you to keep in your Hopebridge Treatment Plan binder.

Meaningful Day Services
Occupational Therapy (OT) is professional treatment that helps individuals with disabilities reach their highest potential. It is based on the concept that people get better when they are engaged in activities that have personal meaning and importance. Occupation is any activity that a person finds meaningful and that contributes to the sense of "self." OT uses an individual's occupations as both the means (therapy) and the end (goals) in achieving a higher level of health and independence.
