Occupational Therapy

MAC Occupational Therapists collaborate with each individual’s behavioral therapy team to promote adaptive and motor development and address sensory dysfunction.

In addition to direct weekly sessions, Behavioral Therapists are taught to prompt self-care, fine motor and gross motor skills in the same ways our Occupational Therapists do. This gives the individual the extra repetition and practice he or she requires to make real progress for functional skills they will use life-long. This delivery model is unique as Occupational therapy goals are integrated into the Individual Treatment Plan and also targeted during individual sessions.

MAC Occupational Therapists are on site at our center locations and able to support the team on a moment’s notice. For example, if an individual is struggling with an adaptive target in their ABA treatment plan or having difficulty attending due to sensory dysfunction, a MAC Occupational Therapist is available to offer problem solving approaches throughout the week. In addition, MAC offers weekly Speech and Occupational Therapy groups to practice social communication and motor skills in a group setting.
