Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists help children who
have difficulty with grasping, coloring and writing.
Activities of daily living are addressed as well
such as feeding, dressing, bathing and self-care.
Sensory integration is also addressed for children
who present with difficulties touching various textures such as sandy or slimy, eating
various textures such as creamy or crunch or controlling emotions in stimulating
environments.

Our occupational therapists address some of the following skills:
  • facilitate normal development of fine, gross and sensory motor skills
  • maximize independence in activities for daily living
  • improve and develop coordination
  • develop and improve handwriting, playing and socializing
  • improve joint range of motion
  • motor planning
  • balance
  • increase attention
  • visual perception
Feeding therapy can be addressed through
play therapy to make the child feel more
comfortable and willing to participate.
Strength and coordination can be
a challenge for some but
improvements can be seen
through specific exercises and
activities.
