Webinar with Occupational Therapist Hilde Pitteljon

Hilde Pitteljon is an occupational therapist in Dominiek Savio institution. She’s the coordinator of the consult center. The Dominiek Savio Institution supports babies, children, adolescents and adults with a (neuro-)motor handicap or an acquired brain injury. They offer solutions in the field of education, housing, day care, practical help, home support,...

Hilde presented a case study on how they work on hand function with children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy. This case study included the process of application, assessment, targeting and interventions based on the ICF framework.

Besides working from ICF she also focused on the dreams and expectations of the child, the youngster and the context. By starting from the demands of the client there is a big opportunity that solutions are effectively integrated in the daily context of the client.

In this way, we realise a tailor-made solution for each client. The occupational therapist is the best placed professional to realise this.
