Occupational therapy uses meaningful activities to help promote independence in all daily life activities.
The practice of occupational therapy means the therapeutic use of occupations, including everyday life activities with individuals, groups, populations, or organizations to support participation, performance, and function in roles and situations in home, school, workplace, community, and other settings.
Our therapists can help treat issues regarding:
- Fine Motor: Difficulty with hand strength and coordination.
- Visual Perceptual: Difficulty with ability to interpret and make sense of what is seen.
- Visual Motor: Difficulty with interpreting visual information and responding with appropriate motor action.
- Oral Feeding: Difficulty with eating, swallowing, and drooling.
- Sensory Integration: Difficulty with the effectiveness and efficiency of processing and coordinating sensory information.
- Life Skills: Difficulty with activities of daily living including playing, dressing, and hygiene/grooming tasks.
Our therapists use activities tailored to the child’s interests to target the above-mentioned areas and build skills in those areas. We use a developmental approach to meet the child where they are at and help them progressively increase their skills and overcome their challenges.
