What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy enhances upper body strength, eye-hand coordination, and tolerance to touch and movement. Occupational therapists also work on feeding and self-help skills. Our occupational therapists are highly trained in sensory integration, therapeutic listening, handwriting, splinting, improving fine motor skills, developmental delays and treating neurological conditions in children.

Occupational Therapists are trained to provide specialized services in many areas.  These include:
 
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADLs): self-care, feeding, dressing, and assistive devices
  • Fine-Motor Skills: motor control, writing skills, and bilateral integration.
  • Neuromusculoskeletal: functional and protective splinting, positioning and adaptive equipment, taping, soft-tissue integrity, functional joint mobility, strengthening, and endurance.
  • Perceptual Processing: body scheme, spatial relations, position in space, eye-hand coordination, and motor planning.
  • Sensory Integration: sensory processing (visual, auditory, oral, proprioceptive, vestibular, sensory discrimination, sensory modulation, regulation and attention span.
  • Social Functioning: social interaction, play skills, environmental exploration, and adaptive behavior.
