Mobile podiatrist occupational therapy offers several distinct benefits:
You are a parent of an occupational therapy-required child. It can be difficult for your child to adapt to new surroundings, including travel time and taking time off work.
Gen Physio offers a quick and effective solution: mobile podiatrist Occupational Therapy. This service allows one of our therapists to travel to your home and work with your child. This could be your home, your child’s school, or a childcare center.
What Are The Benefits Of A Mobile Podiatrist Occupational Therapist Clinic?
A Natural Environment
The therapist can see your child in their natural environment, such as school or home, to make treatment recommendations and tailor it according to the available resources, supports, space, and other factors. Mobile therapy allows the specialist to use tools and games you don't have at home. However, this may make mobile therapy more appealing to your child. You might also be able to help your child associate specific places in their home with therapy or learning. This could make it easier for them to complete the "homework" related therapy each week.
More Comfort For Your Child
Your child will feel more at ease and safer if they are working in familiar surroundings. There are many adjustments required for a child to feel safe and comfortable when they visit a clinic. This includes adjusting to a new environment, a new therapist, and a new routine. A child will find it easier to adjust to a new person. The child and the therapist develop a stronger bond, which is more effective. Therapy will be more meaningful and effective if the child feels at ease. You might encourage your child to show the Occupational Therapist their classroom or home.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to get a child to therapy in a car. This can lead to anxiety and stress that could hinder effective therapy. You will always need to spend time and money on fuel. Mobile therapy allows you to have your therapist come to you. This saves you time and fuel costs, and can potentially decrease the number of fights to get your child into and out of the car.
