Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps children do the things they want and need to do on a daily basis to live life to its fullest. Our team helps children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, recover from injury to regain skills, and help them navigate 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.
