Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy assists individuals of all ages with physical, developmental, mental or emotional disabilities to improve skills that help them perform meaningful tasks or “occupations” required by their daily lives. These tasks could include work, play, school-related activities, self-care skills and social interactions with family and friends. Pediatric Occupational Therapy refers to providing child-centered care and service with a focus on sensory processing issues, cognitive, motor, and other developmental delays, as well as, injuries and other impairments. Common behaviors and skills addressed through occupational therapy might include improving a child’s attention to tasks, self-regulation skills, motor coordination, handwriting, safety awareness, and increasing tolerance for various textures as well as movement experiences.
