Occupational therapy app
managed by practitioners
Inspired by our kids and the people who care for them
We are Hadas and Oren. As parents of two young children with sensory issues, we know first hand just how vital carryover is, and just how difficult it can be to make it part of a family’s everyday life. That’s why a few years ago we created SensoryTreat with the goal of making home programs a fun and engaging part of the daily routine. Read more >
After seeing the extremely positive response of thousands of families to the app, we understood that we could go even further by giving therapists a helping hand to empower parents in their home program activities.
Therapists and parents need little convincing about the role carryover plays in improving the way a child functions and participates in daily activities. What they lack are tools to support and amplify their efforts.
For instance, we discovered that therapists want to customize home programs but too often resort to templates and “generic” advice due to time pressures, and that their picture of family engagement is too often clouded by memory bias. Likewise, we learned that parents want a way to log their feedback in real time and share this at their next meeting – but lack a way to do this.
We learned that therapists need a better way to gain greater visibility into what’s happening at home, and that parents need to feel that being out of sight doesn’t mean being out of mind. And, we understood that parents need more structured guidance, both at the start, in setting up the home program, and along the way to feel reassured that they are making tangible progress.
Thus, we set about creating a new and better way to facilitate the collaboration that we know can make a real impact on the success of carryover. The result: Our enhanced carryover platform that makes it easier for therapists to help families, for the ultimate benefit of all our children.
To provide practitioners with evidence based tools and content for empowering caregivers. Launched first as a sensory diet app for parents, SensoryTreat has grown to provide practitioners with tools to setup and monitor occupational therapy apps for home programs. Helping practitioners empower caregivers and foster carryover into the child’s natural environments and everyday routines.
SensoryTreat is indebted to so many wonderful, talented practitioners and scholars who have generously given of their time and professional wisdom to help improve this tool. We are proud to be part of this amazing collaborative effort.
