Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is available for children who have – or who are at risk for developing – physical or cognitive deficits, psychosocial dysfunction, mental illness, developmental and/or learning disorders, and maladaptive behaviors. This therapy focuses on work and play activities that help children improve or restore function, enhance development and prevent disability brought on by illness, injury, or deprivation. Licensed Occupational Therapists use a knowledge base of neurology, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, child development, psychology, psychosocial development, activity analysis, and ergonomics to help each child achieve maximum independence and enhance his or her quality of life while taking part in daily activities.

Services may include:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Visual motor integration
  • Sensory integration
