Our Vision

Occupational Therapy Services ensures that close collaboration is maintained with all multidisciplinary personnel (doctors, nurses, dieticians, physical therapists, psychologists, communication technicians, and social workers) involved in treating the child and his family, in accordance with Schneider Children’s “whole-child-care” therapeutic approach.

The formulation of an individual therapeutic program for the child is based upon comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis. Counseling and guidance for the family is provided at all stages. Family members are encouraged to actively participate in the decision-making process and ongoing care, while taking the child’s educational needs into account at the same time.
