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).

Occupational therapists work from the inside out to address the difficulties children may face. Learning about emotions and being able to understand how they change in different situations is a valuable skill for kids. OT helps develop self-awareness and social skills (among many others) that help the body and mind work together!

Some children have difficulties organizing the sounds we make when talking. “Gliding” is a common speech pattern that typically disappears by age 5. This is when “l” and “r” sounds are substituted for “w” and “y” sounds. Speech therapy helps correct this phonological process, and much more!
