Online OTs is a telehealth occupational therapy practice that specializes in the management of vocal and motor tics caused by Functional Neurological Disorder, tic disorders, and Tourette Syndrome. We are certified in a research backed approach called Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics, aka CBIT. Our practice is based on extensive pediatric experience as occupational therapists in public and private schools, as well as in specialized home care. Our clinicians also have personal experience related to having a child with tics. We are familiar with challenging conditions associated with having tics, as well as special skills and talents that many people with tics have. Most patients benefit from a total of 3 -8 treatment sessions over 2 - 5 months. All therapy is conducted via telehealth and parents are required at each session for children 18 and younger. Parents are still HIGHLY encouraged to participate with young adults.
Online OTs accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield and Allways Health Partners. Due to the pandemic, both of these insurers are currently waving co-pays for our patients with Massachusetts plans and pre-authorization is not required.
