Occupational Therapy is a treatment that focuses on everyday life skills and helps your child live life to their fullest potential. Growing, learning, and playing is your child’s occupation and occupational therapy can help them improve their day-to-day functioning. We focus on your child’s cognitive, sensory, and physical abilities to encourage growth. Our highly educated and skilled Occupational Therapists will give your child the steps necessary to be more independent, while maximizing their life skills and enhancing their natural abilities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An evaluation will be done by one of our licensed Occupational Therapists. During the evaluation, the therapist will gather information from you, perform standardized testing if appropriate, and observe your child. The therapist will identify problems and strengths and determine the best way to improve your child’s skills. If your child will benefit from occupational therapy, an individual plan will be established with your input, your child’s input if appropriate, and the child’s doctor.
