Our Services include: 
Providing consultations for community clinicians, especially physical therapists, other occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists by request for clients on their caseload.  The child will be assessed as to whether breathing dysfunction is interfering with daily life.  Standardized data, parent interview, medical record review, and clinical observation are assessed.  Consultations last 45 minutes to an hour.  The results are explained to the parents and clinicians, and a typed summary is forwarded to the referring clinician.
The child is evaluated using a series of standardized tests, parent interview, medical record review, and clinical observation.  Children find these assessments fun as a wide variety of activities are covered during the assessment. Typically, evaluations take up to an hour and a half.  Results are statistically compared with a large test base of similarly aged children. Preliminary results and observations are explained to parents during and following the assessment. A typed report is then forwarded to parents and any other professionals working with the child, as requested.
Following the assessment Tamara will make a recommendation based on the results of the assessment. Treatment can take a variety of forms: individual occupational therapy sessions, a detailed program for parents to administer at home, or a detailed program for therapists to implement within treatment.  Treatment sessions are typically 45 minutes or an hour and take place in home, a clinic, or the surrounding community as indicated by the child’s therapy. Progress towards these goals will be monitored and treatment will be concluded when age appropriate skills have been developed.
