Child’s Play + Rehabilitation
Integrating our approach
Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability.
Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Occupational therapy services typically include:
- An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals.
- Customized intervention plan to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals.
- An outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science. At Child’s Play, our Occupational Therapist team works directly with integrated treatment plans and goal setting with the ABA treatment team.
Each semester, our clinics host pediatric rotation clinical students in Huntington University’s doctoral program in occupational therapy (OTD).

A persons occupation is anything that they do in a day, everything from sleep to making food and being able to eat it.
One of a child’s occupations is play! Here at Child’s Play Plus our Occupational Therapy providers take a play-based approach with patients! Kids feel like they’re just having fun while we work on their goals.
“Kids are always happy to see me because they get to create obstacle courses and crafts, engage in imaginative play, and try various sensory activities! We get to have fun together while we are meeting goals!” – Monica Phillips, M.S., OTRL | Occupational Therapist at Child’s Play Plus

Being able to feed yourself is a life skill that everyone should master. Our ABA kiddos get to work on that everyday in our kitchens. Step-by-step they learn how to prepare their own lunch… and boy does it smell good!
