Individual OT sessions
Your child will receive individual 1:1 sessions beginning with a Comprehensive OT evaluation, followed by weekly/bi-weekly, 1:1 OT treatment sessions (typically for 6-12+weeks depending on the needs of your child and the progress he/she makes with the plan of care) that are a total of 60 minutes in duration. These sessions are provided by a registered and licensed OT with a focus on providing Holistic and Integrative approaches to pediatric pelvic floor dysfunction and difficulties with toileting skills. Interventions may include a review of bowel and bladder management habits, play-based therapeutic pelvic floor exercises, self-care task training with a focus on toileting, animal-assisted therapy (with a certified facility therapy dog), therapeutic yoga, biofeedback, social stories with toileting and self-care as a theme, mindfulness practice, sensory processing interventions, and aromatherapy as indicated by each child’s individualized OT goals. The last 10 minutes of each session is dedicated to parent/caregiver questions, plan of care and/or home program review, and documentation. These sessions are available in-person at our clinic in Santa Rosa,CA and telehealth.
