Occupational therapy is a rehabilitative field that helps people who may have challenges or something standing in their way to perform their daily activities so that they can function optimally. In pediatric occupational therapy, occupations refer to all the activities that occupy and give meaning to a child’s life, climbing, catching a ball, writing their name, cutting with a scissor or tying their shoes. The occupational therapist evaluates the child’s fine motor, visual perceptual, sensory processing, gross motor and social skills. Therapy sessions use play to help children improve their skills for greater success at home, in school, and on the playground.
Our goal is to build upon your child’s strengths to promote further independence in daily activities of life, thus empowering every child step by step. We take a holistic approach in evaluating your child to understand how occupational therapy can most positively impact their life.
In conjunction with their caregivers, teachers and health practitioners, we will take part in connecting the dots and determining a treatment plan that can address the immediate as well as long term needs of every child.
