Our Occupational Therapy Services

Explore how our New Hampshire occupational therapy services can help your child.

What Is Pediatric OT?

Our therapeutic methods are play-based with an emphasis on developmental intervention. We help children work towards a variety of goals, including motor milestones, self-care skills like feeding, dressing and grooming, play, fine motor activities including handwriting and cutting, sensory and emotional regulation. We work closely with families to identify specific goals and provide education to best meet your child’s needs. 

Ways to Work With Us

Clinic-Based OT Services

Our Stratham, NH occupational therapy clinic opened in 2022 and is ready to host your child for their appointment. With swings, climbing structures and quiet spaces for one-on-one evaluations and activities, the clinic is APT’s home base.

In-Home OT Services

If you aren’t able to come to the clinic or want to experience OT in the comfort of your own home, in-home therapy could be. good fit. In-home occupational therapy is available in the Seacoast region of NH, including most of Rockingham County.

Telehealth OT Services

Our telehealth OT services are perfect for families who live outside of our typical service area but still want to work with our therapists. Telehealth means you can stay up-to-date with appointments even if you’re traveling or under the weather.

Community-Based OT Services

We travel to clients’ daycares, playgrounds and other local community locations to provide evidence-based therapy in a child’s natural environment. We can help your child build new skills in the spaces where they’ll put them into action.

School-Based OT Services

Does your child attend private school or a homeschool co-op? We love working with private and alternative school families to provide in-school occupational therapy services in New Hampshire.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about our New Hampshire occupational therapy services? Explore our FAQs below or contact us to learn more.

How do I know if OT is right for my child?

There’s not always a clear answer when it comes to whether OT is right for your child. For many of our families, their pediatrician or other doctor has recommended occupational therapy to them. Other times, a parent may simply feel like their child could use some additional support with sensory seeking, sensory processing, coordination or daily tasks.

Either way, we always start with a thorough evaluation of your child. We won’t recommend OT services unless your child truly needs them.

How do you know what kind of support my child needs?

It all starts with the evaluation. We’ll chat with you and any other caregivers to learn more about your child and we’ll ask for relevant medical records to ensure we’re up to date on your child’s current care. Then, we’ll schedule a time to engage with and observe your child directly, either in person or via a telehealth appointment.

Once we’ve completed the evaluation, we’ll put together a treatment plan that is personalized to your child’s needs. We check in on progress regularly to ensure we’re always providing the support your child truly needs.

Where will our appointments be?

It depends! Our Stratham, NH occupational therapy clinic is open and ready for appointments. However, we also offer in-home, community-based and telehealth appointments to fit your lifestyle and your child’s needs.

If your child is struggling with school-based tasks, for example, we can bring our services to their private school or daycare.

How long will my child need OT services?

This depends on many factors. Some of our patients work with us throughout their childhood and teen years. Others only need OT support for a few months while working on very specific skills or building a sensory diet.

When we evaluate your child and put together a personalized treatment plan, we’ll also identify goals to work toward during appointments. We’ll check on progress toward those goals regularly, so that you’re always in-the-know and your child is only receiving the support they need.

Can you work around our schedule?

We certainly do our best! With options for clinic-based, in-home, community-based and telehealth appointments, we aim to help OT fit your family life.

We are also open from 8am to 5pm each week day, allowing for early morning or after school appointment times.

How much does OT cost?

It depends! While some of our patients do pay out of pocket for OT services, the majority use medical insurance to cover their therapy fees. In this case, typically only a co-pay is required for payment. 

Each insurance plan is unique, so be sure to check in with your insurance provider for more details.
