, and response to the environment as it relates to seeing, hearing, touch/pressure, movement and other senses.
Occupational Therapy Services in Psychiatry
Youth with psychiatric diagnoses often have difficulty with completing daily and routine tasks, interacting with peers and staff, effectively managing frustration and mood changes, and organizing thoughts for effective problem solving.
Occupational Therapy Treatment
Occupational therapy services are offered to youth based on results of the evaluation given at admission. Occupational therapy uses an activity-based approach to highlight areas of strength and engage the client in functional and age-appropriate tasks that increase independence in self-care, social skills, leisure activities, coping skills, cognition and sensory processing.
