Occupational Therapy

About us

The Pediatric Therapy Services Department is comprised of Occupational and Speech
Therapists. Our goal is to improve the quality of everyday life for young patients with developmental delays and specials needs. Staff members work as a team to develop individualized therapy programs to optimize development and address rehabilitation. Our team approach and child-friendly environment help children reach age-appropriate and condition-appropriate goals. We want each child to reach his/her maximum potential. Our therapists are specially trained in the field of Pediatric Therapy. They incorporate play into therapy sessions and are trained to be more sensitive to the emotional, psychological and physical needs of children.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists refer to occupation in a broader sense. "Occupation" is any activity that an individual does in their everyday life that has meaning to them and occupies their time. A child's occupation is to play, learn, socialize with friends and engage in self-help skills.
Occupational Therapists use a play based family centered approach to assist children in developing these skills to their highest potential. The aim is to help children transition into adulthood with independence.
The OT uses everyday life activities to improve function and performance for those limited by:
• Physical injury or illness
• Cognitive impairment
• Psychosocial dysfunction
• Sensory impairment
• Developmental or learning disability
• Environmental barriers

The practice of occupational therapy includes evaluation, assessment, treatment and consultation.

Fundation skills that we work on :

Once you contact our clinic to seek occupational therapy services, your child will then be scheduled for an OT assessment. During this assessment, the occupational therapist will gather information from parents, and use various standardized assessments and skilled clinical interventions to obtain a baseline of your child's strengths and limitations.

After the assessment they will provide you with a brief overview of their recommendations followed by a detailed report. If your child qualifies for occupational therapy services, you will be guided to our scheduling staff who will help you find a regular ongoing treatment appointment with one of our highly skilled therapists.

Art Therapy (Ergotherapy)

In our hospital, we have occupational therapy where we practice marbling, medical yoga, cinema therapy, music (rhythm therapy) and painting workshops and supportive therapies carried out under the supervision of clinical psychologists and experts, which facilitates the social compliance after the therapeutic process.

Medical Music

Our goal is to use Turkish classical music, which is used in bimarhanes and darussifas (old Turkish hospitals) in the Ottoman period, as Turkish therapy music in accordance with scientific data. The goal is to determine the type of music which causes positive changes in the patient’s brain waves and playing those musics in the patient’s room.
