OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Northwest Spokane Pediatrics has designed a new and innovative approach to holistic child care. NWSP is the first pediatric clinic in the region to offer in house therapy services including occupational therapy, speech therapy, and mental health counseling. This allows for increased communication and collaboration between therapists and providers synergistically providing a higher level of care than what may be otherwise achieved.
 
Occupational therapy provides a number of services, working with both the child and family, to increase the child’s potential for success in home, school, and community settings. Our occupational therapy team works with the family to establish the needs of the child which may range from motor skills to sensory processing or social skills.
 
With the use of a state of the art sensory gym and treatment rooms, we have sought to create a fun and interactive learning environment. Through these spaces along with a staff of welcoming therapists, we have designed an environment aimed to facilitate learning and engagement on a new level. Our focus has been creating a setting where kids look forward to sessions and are therefore more likely to explore new ideas, concepts, and strategies to address their needs.
 
Our therapists are certified by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy as well as licensed by the Washington State Department of Health. All provided services and treatment strategies are evidenced based to ensure the highest quality of care. Therapists are kept constantly up to date with the newest methods through continuing education efforts. An emphasis is placed on a relationship building model to ensure trust, openness, and communication between therapist, child, and family.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

If you feel your child may benefit from services, please schedule an appointment with your provider and discuss your concerns. You will then receive a referral and an initial evaluation will take place to discern your child’s needs and an appropriate plan of care. The initial evaluation includes an assessment with your child as well as a clinical interview with the parent to collect all necessary information. From there, a treatment plan and goals are created. Sessions are generally 50 minutes in length and take place on a weekly basis, but plans are flexible to best fit the needs of the family.

A home program will also be designed and provided by the treating therapist. These may range from fine motor activities to the integration of sensory strategies at home. This will arm the family with the knowledge and confidence to make further progress outside of therapy and ensure a quick road to success.
