How can our occupational therapy services help you or an adult in your life?

DTC offers occupational therapy services for adults with cognitive impairments and traumatic brain injuries.  Our therapists utilize a collaborative treatment process to promote and maintain the patient’s independence and participation in activities of daily living (ADLs – dressing, grooming, showering, etc.), instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs – meal preparation, laundry, money management, etc.), community engagement and mobility, and much more. The occupational therapists at Developmental Therapy Center, Inc. are able to simulate daily activities using our various treatment spaces, which include a kitchen, a full shower and bathroom, a laundry room, and a therapy gym. Our occupational therapists strive to utilize innovative treatments to help our patients complete important and necessary daily tasks to the best of their ability.
