Occupational Therapy (OT) helps children and adults develop and maintain daily living and working (learning) abilities. These abilities are affected by cognitive, sensory, physical, and motor skills, which are the focus of the therapeutic process. M2 currently offers this service for children up to age 6.
Our therapists are responsible for the evaluation, planning, and implementation of a program focused on habilitation and rehabilitation of pediatric cases. Clients in either of these therapies may come from the context of a delay in early development, trauma, injury, or physical disability.
Issues addressed among others
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
HOW TO BEGIN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?
Before registering for any developmental therapy session with M2, a report from a developmental pediatrician is required. You may choose to schedule an appointment with a developmental pediatrician at Makati Medical Center through M2. (For details, please ask your attending OT.)
Occupational therapy begins with a multi-session initial evaluation and an evaluative meeting with the child’s parents and the therapist. During this meeting, goals for the child’s treatment will be determined and the number of OT sessions will be recommended.
For assessment purposes and further observation, home or school visits may be recommended to gain a more comprehensive understanding of a child’s day-to-day environment. This will inform the development of an optimal occupational therapy program for the client.
