Occupational Therapy deals with the strengthening of fine-motor skills like writing, cutting, balance, shoe-tying and using utensils. For children, whose “occupation” is school and play, it will focus more sharply on developmental milestones and skills required for playground and academic activities. Our Occupational Therapists use techniques and routines that may seem like play, but are designed to target areas of delay and difficulty.
We offer a wide range of services uniquely designed to address learning, social, and developmental needs of children. Each child is assessed to determine their strengths and the barriers that interfere with their growth. A program is then developed that combines multiple modalities to best meet the needs across environmental and social situations.
Our occupational therapists are also trained in therapy with a sensory integration approach, which uses play-like activities to help children better process and tolerate the information they get through their senses. We work with infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents alongside their families in a variety of settings including out state of the art OT room, schools, and homes.
We also assist children and their caregivers in addressing the psychosocial needs of children and youth to enable them to participate in meaningful life events. These occupations may include: normal growth and development, feeding, play, social skills, and education.
