*(Fremont County, Wyo.) *- Fremont Therapy Group
is proud to announce their new
outpatient, pediatric physical and occupational therapy program.
Occupational therapist, Lisa Rhyne, OTR/L, will spearhead the program and
is excited about the benefits her “therapy through play” methods can offer
the children and families of Fremont County. Lisa has been a practicing
occupational therapy since 2001, and has a broad background in pediatrics,
with advanced training in sensory processing disorders, autism spectrum
disorders, developmental delays, and a variety of other pediatric
conditions. She is a trained Integrated Listening System (iLs)
The goal of occupational therapy is, essentially, to train people in the
skills needed to participate in daily routines and tasks. “For children,
these daily “activities” include learning how to play, how to take care of
themselves, how to be a friend and, when they are old enough, how to be a
student. If a child has underlying developmental, physical or social
limitations, occupational therapy can help develop those skills or teach
them an alternative way to participate,” says Lisa.
Pediatric occupational therapy can be especially helpful to children with
fine motor limitations, learning or developmental disabilities or other
physical or social limitations. This may include those diagnosed with
conditions such as autism or cerebral palsy. For example, “children with
learning disabilities often have underlying visual perception or visual
motor limitations that make writing very difficult for them,” Lisa added.
“Occupational therapy can help remediate those skills and provide adaptive
tools to make tasks easier for the child.”
Our physical therapists, Kim Asbell, PT, MPT, Tammy Bushmeyer, PT, MPT, and
Bree Martinsen, PTA, are experts with many years of pediatric therapy
experience. They are highly regarded in the community for their skills in
treating youngsters with Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy
and related disorders, Torticollis, and every type of children’s orthopedic
We work collaboratively with physicians, teachers and family members to
reinforce the skills and exercises learned in the outpatient therapy
sessions. With practice, the children can begin performing tasks more
independently and effectively.
“We are so pleased to offer this service to the Fremont County community
because we know what a difference it makes in the lives of these children
to be able to better interact with their families and peers and to be more
independent and confident in their day-to-day lives,” says Lander clinic
director, Courtney Hansen, PT, MPT.

able to help your child, please call our Lander clinic at 307-332-5240 or
