Nature-based occupational therapy is a holistic approach that uses natural environments and activities to promote physical, emotional, and mental well-being. This approach involves a variety of outdoor activities, such as gardening, hiking, and nature walks, to help individuals connect with nature and enhance their overall health. By incorporating nature into therapy sessions, nature-based occupational therapy can provide individuals with a unique and effective way to reduce stress, improve focus, and increase physical activity.
Our nature groups use the POWER framework to build your child's ability to plan and organize their own work. We help kids make friends and build social skills. The group is one time per week for 90 minutes to allow for time to transition, learn and practice and follow up with parents at the end of each group. Every group has their own online meeting room for pictures of activities, a private place to ask questions and get support.
Our Developmental playgroups are for children 3-6 years old and build play, emotional regulation, sensory and social skills. We play outside, rain or shine, and learn about the wonders of nature while building key skills that support early childhood development. Groups are one hour per week and are drop off or parents may participate or observe.
Hippotherapy is a tool used by occupational therapists to harness the dynamic movement of the horse. Through this experience, children can improve their balance, coordination, strength, and overall motor skills, while also developing a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem. With the guidance of trained professionals, hippotherapy can be an effective option for children with a range of conditions, including cerebral palsy, autism, and developmental delays. By incorporating this unique and engaging movement into their treatment plan, children can enjoy a fun and rewarding way to achieve their therapeutic goals. Hippotherapy is motivating and a great tool in OT.
Aquatic occupational therapy is a fun and effective way for children to improve their physical and cognitive abilities. This therapy takes place in a pool or other water-based environment, where children can engage in a range of activities that promote strength, balance, coordination, and social skills. Through swimming, water play, and other aquatic exercises, children can develop a greater sense of confidence and independence, while also enjoying the therapeutic benefits of being in the water. With the support of trained professionals, aquatic occupational therapy can be a great option for children with a variety of conditions, including cerebral palsy, autism, and developmental delays.
Why you shouldn't wait to get started on skill building
Every week my son asks if he is going to work with Gina. He loves the weekly group and is making friends while learn new skills. We are amazed at how much he has grown.
Mom to 10 year old son
After working with Ryan my son was courageous to ask for things at stores and restaurants. He lost his temper a few times but was able to recover relatively quickly. We are so proud of him.
Mom to 9 yo son
We're so happy that our son is better able to stop, think and create a plan. He listens to us better and is having less meltdowns at home and school.
Dad to 7 yo son
