Cultural Background and Individuality 

The OTOL Rx treatment model reflects a strong sensitivity and responsiveness to each client’s individuality, cultural/ethnic background, and lifestyle choices. This is essential given the heterogenous mix of people in Southern California and our view of what defines a successful therapy program—taking the time to understand and address what defines a meaningful therapy outcome for each client in their everyday life.  We have learned that effective rehabilitation– particularly in the home and community setting- often involves modifying common practices and approaches in order to step outside an Anglo cultural lens and to embrace diversity on all levels.
