A New Way To Provide Services
The OT Colorado Collective is an innovative approach to providing occupational therapy services. We are a collection of qualified OTs, each of whom brings a different background and unique therapeutic process to their practice. Our OTs are hand-picked to join the collective based on their ability to combine different disciplines into their treatment sessions.
We serve children with neurobiological disorders as well as children diagnosed with syndromes and chromosomal abnormalities. We strive to change the processing in the brain from the brainstem through the cortex using specific techniques that improve the number and type of neurochemicals as well as the efficiency of the neural pathways. We start by addressing the processing at the lower brainstem, then the upper brainstem, then the midbrain, and then the cortex.
