Occupational Therapists address fine motor, visual motor, self care, social skill difficulties, and sensory integration delays. Our therapists are specifically trained to incorporate sensory processing techniques into each and every therapy session.
The occupation of childhood is to develop the skills necessary to become functional and independent adults. These skills include:
Regulation of arousal level in order to attend.
Refinement of sensory discrimination and processing.
Continual refinement and development of motor skills.
Development of communication skills.
Appropriate social interactions.
Age appropriate self care skills.
Occupational therapy uses a variety of core
strengthening, movement, proprioception, vestibular, visual, and
auditory based interventions to improve motor function in children who
have delays resulting from a variety of factors. As "PLAY" is the work of all children, our therapists work
hard to make therapy FUN for the child. We also work hard to educate
parents and caregivers in techniques to be used in and outside the home
to ensure carryover of skills.
Contact your doctor and request a referral for an Occupational Therapy evaluation if you suspect that your child has delays in areas of self care, fine motor coordination, handwriting, feeding, sensory processing, balance, hand/eye coordination, and visual motor integration.
