Outdoor and Indoor therapeutic spaces
OUTSIDE – Majority of OT sessions are conducted outside in natural environments. Working outdoors offers a break from the “inside world” that children often find themselves restricted to during the day. It also offers natural therapeutic challenges, especially for our visual, auditory, vestibular, proprioception, and tactile processing. If not in the woods, we might work at your house, school, local playground, or our customized “practice” playground on site.
INSIDE- We have a SENSORY GYM and fine motor area designed for fun and challenges. We often build dynamic obstacle courses, emphasizing motor planning, heavy work, and arousal modulation. The new glow-in-the-dark rock wall is a great way to encourage our kids to challenge their vestibular and proprioception systems! Sometimes new clients start in the indoor setting while we develop rapport and understand language and intervention strategies.
