Online OTs provides diagnostic evaluations, therapeutic interventions, and individualized training to support children, teenagers, and adults with Tic Disorders and Tourette Syndrome. Our services focus on regaining motor control, preventing further injury or disability, and performing daily activities to increase quality of life. We also address academic, vocational, emotional, behavioral, sensory, and social concerns related to tics.
Online OTs utilizes telehealth to work with patients and their families in natural environments instead of a clinic. Our sessions are held in private homes, schools, playgrounds, workplaces, and anywhere else wi-fi is available. Our coaching model enables carryover to be routine and effective. We focus on present needs and teach strategies to address tics that may pop up in the future.
All of our clinicians are certified in a treatment method called Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics, aka CBIT. This technique is considered the gold star of treatment for both motor and vocal tics and is backed by extensive research and the Tourette Association of America. We see patients affiliated with UMass, MGH, Boston Children's Hospital and practices throughout New England.
Online OTs offers both short and long-term intervention, as well as advocacy in schools and workplaces. We accept BCBS, Allways Health Partners, and Private Pay.
