Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists perform comprehensive initial evaluations to identify a child's impairments and functional limitations. The results are used to develop individualized treatment programs with specific, objective, measurable and time-based goals.

A child’s occupation is to be a kid! Through the use of play, our occupational therapists help children acquire the skills needed for the job of living. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Promoting independence in daily living skills-including dressing, grooming and feeding
  • Facilitating developmental play skills
  • Improving fine motor and eye/hand coordination skills
  • Improving sensory processing skills such as organization, self-regulation and behavioral state
  • Improving visual motor/visual perceptual skills including writing and coloring
  • Addressing orthopedic complications and helping to increase function through the use of splinting, casting and forced use therapy as needed
