Occupational Therapists help children improve their ability to perform everyday tasks.
We evaluate and treat individuals from infancy through adolescence. Therapy consists of the acquisition of developmental milestones through gross and fine motor play, development of self-care abilities, social skills, handwriting, oral motor, executive functioning, sensory integrative development and more.
Our OT's also specialize in treating children with mild to severe Sensory Integration Disorder. Children with diagnoses such as ADD, ADHD, FAS, Autism and children labeled as having behavior or attention problems, often have underlying sensory processing differences. We offer direct, ongoing, one-to-one therapy in order to help children and their parents make sense of what may seem like an overwhelming and chaotic world. As children gain the skills to integrate their sensory systems and process the world around them, they become better able to focus on laying brain pathways to learn higher level skills, activities of daily living, and play. Children learn to identify and self-regulate their activity level, resulting in a child that can better control his or her behavior, even in chaotic environments, during transitions, and during unexpected events. The child’s success becomes a victory for the entire family.
