Our goal is to make neurological rehabilitation more accessible, personalized, and skilled.
Clients are typically seen weekly in their homes or virtually for 1-4 months (depending on your needs) with monthly check ins as needed following discharge. A neurological occupational therapist will evaluate you or your loved one using standardized tools (as indicated)- this can be accomplished either online or in person (if you live in the Denver area).
A neurological occupational therapist has extensive experience helping individuals with neurological conditions overcome barriers to independence.
You will learn to work with your strengths and manage/compensate for areas of difficulty related to your executive functioning skills or physical capabilities. This will allow you to live a more fulfilling life and accomplish tasks throughout the day!
The first step is to schedule a free consultation where we will discuss what your concerns are and more information regarding what your course of treatment may look like. Then, we will discuss scheduling an evaluation where we look further into areas of concern, perform testing as needed, and develop a thorough treatment plan for addressing your concerns.
What is Occupational Therapy?
How Can It Help?
"In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes." - AOTA
"Occupations" are everything you do on a daily basis that make you independent, happy, and productive. Occupational Therapists undergo specialized training in helping you achieve success in these areas and living life to the fullest.
What is Functional Cognition
Why You Should be Seeing an Occupational Therapist To Address Cognition
"Functional cognition, which can be defined as the cognitive ability to perform daily life tasks, is conceptualized as incorporating metacognition, executive function, other domains of cognitive functioning, performance skills (e.g., motor skills that support action), and performance patterns (e.g., habits, routines; Giles et al., 2017; Wolf et al., 2019). Rather than assess specific cognitive skills (e.g., attention, memory, executive function) in isolation from one another, the goal of functional cognition evaluation is to identify clients’ capacity to perform essential tasks given the totality of their abilities, including their use of strategies, habits and routines, and contextual and environmental resources. The evaluation of functional cognition is therefore a central concern of occupational therapists’ professional practice (Wolf et al., 2019)." - Making Functional Cognition a Professional Priority | American Journal of Occupational Therapy (aota.org)
