Highest recommendations! I have to admit, my husband and I were skeptical with the notion of occupational therapy. However, our son's school has been recommending OT for some time, so we finally decided to give it a try. We are glad we did. Lisa at OT Arts is wonderful! She has made various suggestions for our highly energetic 6 year old who would also experience outbursts of anxiety and anger. We have implemented Lisa's suggestions at school and at home, and happy to say it has been a great success. We have learned skills to keep and maintain our son's energy at an acceptable level. Sure, he still gets anxious and angry (but not as often....), however, we now feel better prepared to help him with it all. The knowledge we have obtained from our sessions at OT Arts has made such a difference in our household. Additionally, we recently met with our son's teachers, and they too noticed a change for the better. We are very grateful.
