Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists help children to acquire skills they need to perform activities or occupations of daily life. They take a holistic approach to a child’s well-being and address the physical, psychological, social, and environmental factors that may affect a child’s functioning. Occupational therapists address a variety of issues which may include but are not limited to the following: self-care skills, self-regulation and behavior, attention span and arousal levels, sensory processing skills, fine motor/visual motor skills, and handwriting. 

 
Academic Skills

Improve academic skills such as attention, handwriting, visual memory, organizational skills, and more. For more information on our academic readiness programs, visit our specialty pages and programs,

Sensory Integration

Sensory integration teaches children to self-regulate and better adapt to their environment. OT will help children that are sensitive to sounds, movement, messy play, are clumsy, or are picky eaters.

Fine Motor Skills

OT works on improving fine motor skills so that individuals can succeed with every day tasks such as playing with toys, writing, managing fasteners, cutting with scissors, or coordination with tools and utensils.

Self-Care and Life Skills

If your child struggles with any aspect of daily self-cares your OT will be there to help them gain the confidence and independence they need. OT may address sleep, dressing, eating, grooming, social skills and more.
