This Occupational Therapy treatment program is a modifiable work/return to work focused treatment. New Therapy Solutions includes specialized assessments and therapeutic client-centered techniques to ascertain and identify return to work barriers.
During initial intake, our RTW experienced Occupational Therapist will determine if an assessment is required and will have the client complete questionnaires and standardized tests to gather baseline mental status and functioning with a specific goal of identifying functional work-related occupational performance capacity.
A clinical interview is conducted to identify psychosocial deficits - involving both psychological and social aspects of the individual’s mental health. In addition, the OT will address cognitive and behavioural concerns. The objective is to ascertain the current discrepancy between job performance requirements and occupational functioning. Often times there is a presence of work situational factors that maybe thwarting a client from returning to work; this to is addressed during the clinical interview and implemented in the RTW goal planning.
Clients can begin the program subsequent to initial OT clinical assessment.
