Helping your child improve their functional skills for a better quality of life
Through the therapeutic use of play and everyday activities, occupational therapy can teach your child new skills to help them participate more fully in everyday routines and activities.
After completing a comprehensive assessment of your child’s functional abilities, including attention span, play skills, motor skills, and interactions with others, our licensed occupational therapist (OT) will develop an individualized program to help your child improve their response to the world around them.
Using evidenced-based strategies and interventions, our OT can help your child improve skills in the following areas:
- Daily self-care skills (eating, getting dressed, grooming, and hygiene)
- Fine motor skills (those needed to manipulate objects with one or two hands including handwriting, cutting, doing puzzles, catching, throwing, etc.)
- Gross motor skills (walking, climbing stairs, riding a bike)
- Sensory integration
- Social skills
Improving these skills through occupational therapy can help your child make progress in the areas of developing relationships, focusing on tasks, expressing feelings, engaging with others, and learning how to self-regulate.
Occupational therapy may be helpful for children who have:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Intellectual or learning disability
- Motor skills delays
- Feeding difficulties
