Online OTs is a telehealth occupational therapy practice devoted to helping children and adults manage tics. Our support is guided by occupational therapy strategies and the most effective and research backed tic intervention program out there, which is called Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics. Most people just call it CBIT, which is pronounced "See Bit."
Online OTs offers CBIT therapy in natural environments instead of a clinic. Our sessions are held in private homes, public schools, coffee shops, playgrounds, workplaces, and anywhere else wi-fi is available and tics may occur. This approach enables patients to demonstrate how they experience daily life with tics and helps them to recognize supports as well as stressors in their environment. Our coaching model enables carryover to be family centered and consistent. We offer on-call and short-term support, as well as advocacy for our patients.
Online OTs is based near Boston and serves patients throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. We are affiliated with clinicians at UMass, MGH, Boston Children's Hospital, and practices throughout New England.
Online OTs accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield, Allways Health Partners, and private pay for CBIT therapy. MassHealth recipients are eligible for financial assistance.
