group Occupational Therapy

​​ What does GROUP OT look like?

  • After the initial consultation and 3-4 individual sessions with the child to determine their goals, strengths, challenges, and opportunities for growth, your child will be welcome to participate in group occupational therapy with 1-3 other children.

  • Group Treatment - 1 hour sessions:

    • 45 minutes of Group Occupational Therapy with OT and 2-4 children (occasionally I have an intern, student, and/or volunteer to assist). 

    • 15 minutes of 1:1 with OT and parent/caregiver/educator. This can be conducted through email or phone after each session. 

  • Group therapy sessions usually consist of between 2-4 children who are performing the same or similar activities and are supervised by a therapist and/or an assistant. Children who are not receiving OT services, but who benefit from time spent outdoors with other children, may also participate.

  • Re-evaluation process: check-in on goal progression, review and revise goals as needed. Re-evaluation is an on-going process with the parent/caregiver/educator as needed, typically once every month or two. 

BENEFITS OF GROUP OT:

  • Group occupational therapy may benefit children by providing social interaction.

  • In a group setting, children can communicate their ideas with each other and problem solve motor activities.

  • Groups are designed to be appropriate for each child and targeted to meet each child’s individual goals.

  • Group therapy facilitates the development of social skills, sensory processing skills, motor skills, and attention.
