Brattleboro Memorial Hospital – OT

Occupational Therapy at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital:

  • Most referrals to OT in the outpatient setting involve management of upper extremity conditions, mainly orthopedic or neurological in nature. Examples of conditions are fractures, sprains, arthritis, surgeries, carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve palsies, and  stroke.
  • Many simple orthopedic conditions can be seen in OT prior to an orthopedic consultation. It can be very useful to initiate therapy quickly after an injury, especially if there is going to be a long delay before the orthopedic appointment can be scheduled.
  • Patients must get a referral for OT services from their primary care physician or the specialist currently caring for their condition.

Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock

The Interdisciplinary Child Development Program at CHaD (IDCP) provides diagnostic evaluations for young children with developmental and behavioral concerns.

Pediatric specialists observe, test, and counsel families regarding the developmental/behavioral status of their child after extensive review of early intervention/school reports, family questionnaires, and examination of the child.

In addition the staff advises, coordinates, and educates families, primary care providers, educators, and therapists about the diagnoses and management of children and youth within their community setting. The family receives a comprehensive care plan which may include medical, developmental, educational, and/or psychological evaluations with specific suggestions on how to implement the care plan.

A close collaboration between parents, professionals, and educators is maintained. The primary care provider (PCP) has access to a ‘one-referral’ entry point. Following consultation, the PCP receives clear recommendations and continued support to strengthen the medical home for the family.
