Imagine you have an itch you can't scratch.

Imagine you are in an interview, and you have an extreme itch on your foot. Immediately it is hard to pay attention. Students that need Occupational Therapy struggle in a similar way.

Multiply that itch by 1,000.

Many OT students have a sensory overload. Their brains struggle to filter what is or isn't important. Everything is at emergency status. So imagine that itchy feeling being multiplied by 1,000.

You would struggle socially too.

Sensory overwhelm creates behavior that looks like mood swings. This behavior makes it difficult for students needing OT to acclimate to their social situations.



Solution? A sensory diet.

For most students, we can pinpoint what makes their filter go crazy. We work to find the solution that helps the student focus, resulting in better social skills and a healthier classroom environment.

We recognize that some OT students only struggle with motor skills. Lighthouse Therapy Occupational Therapists are equipped to help these students thrive as well.



Get the details on how we help you be successful

We’ve found that many school districts waste a lot of money paying full-time Occupational Therapists to travel between school buildings. Not so with Lighthouse Therapy. Your district is only charged for the time spent with each of your students.

Also, we ship the exact same kit used by our therapists to your students. Having the same tools on both ends of the video conference allows your students to progress faster and we do this at no additional charge to you.

However, each student is different, and these are not guaranteed outcomes.
