When is the Right Time to Discharge from OT?

Our goal with OT when working with pediatric clients is to help the children and their families get through the day easier, learn the skills necessary for ADLs and IADLs, provide emotional regulation tools for all environments that the child is in, and ultimately be successful in all occupations of life that the child wants to participate in.

Success is different for each child and each family which is why there’s no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to treatment or discharge.

In this episode, we discuss what to look for when discharging a client, the downsides of clients becoming dependent on OT services, home exercise programs, and more!
