Occupational therapy helps children do the things they want and need to do on a daily basis to live life to its fullest. They learn how to do daily activities to prevent or better live with injury, illness or disability.
Common situations include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping children recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing support for children experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Our approach is a holistic perspective in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science.
Services typically start with an individualized skilled evaluation, during which the individual/family and occupational therapist determine the goals. A customized plan is developed to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals.
Periodic evaluations ensure the plan is effective and that the goals are being met. Adjustments to treatment or plan are made as needed.
How We Help Children
Each child differs in his/her ability to process sensory information, which impacts his/her development of fine motor, gross motor, visual motor, and resulting modulation/regulation skills for effective and appropriate interaction within his/her expected environments.Therapy can help your child overcome any challenges and enhance their ability to learn, interact with others and enjoy life.
Our Approach to Occupational Therapy
It is important to start with an evaluation, then develop a plan and continually evaluate progress to achieve success.
