Occupational Therapy

Putting the “FUN” back into FUNCTIONAL

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is the use of everyday activities to develop, recover, or maintain the ability  participate in the things that people do everyday.  For children this includes, playing, success in school, and self-care skills.  Occupational therapy addresses these areas of childrens’ lives by improving their fine and gross motor skills, motor planning, sensory processing skills, visual motor skills, upper body strength, body tone, endurance and self-care skills. Occupational Therapy requires a comprehensive evaluation/assessment in order to develop a individualized treatment plan for each or our clients.

What is the MLee Approach?

The Occupational Therapists at MLee are nationally board certified by the American Occupational Therapy Association and fully licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners for Occupational Therapy.   The OTs at MLee focus on the integration of fine/gross motor skills, reflexes, and sensory information in order to help children learn and behave as expected.  The OTs at MLee make up a critical piece of our interdisciplinary and collaborative therapy team. 

What is PROMPT Therapy?

PROMPT Therapy is a touch based approach to increasing our client’s control of their speech muscles (jaw, lips, tongue) by moving the muscles with our hands to the appopriate positions for making words, phrases, and sentences.   PROMPT Therapy is holistic and considers areas of strengths and weaknesses in cognition, physical, and social skills and how these areas affect eachother when our clients are communicating.
