Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapy assists children in developing the necessary skills for living. Since children’s primary occupation is play, therapy often focuses on developing the skills needed to play. Occupational therapy addresses developmental milestones, motor planning, sensory integration, daily living skills and social interactions. Occupational therapists use child centered, play based therapeutic activities to improve a child’s ability to interact with their environment. Therapy takes place across all settings including homes, schools, daycares and at our new clinic. Pediatric occupational therapy is very family centered and family education is an important factor in successful interventions.
