Occupational Therapy

Helping children succeed in life now and as they grow and thrive.

What Is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is a fun way for trained professionals to help improve your child’s sensory processing, visual perceptual, attention, and fine motor coordination skills that are used throughout activities of daily living. Children require these skills for body awareness, self-soothing, acceptance of different textures, dressing, tying shoes, and cutting with scissors to name a few. Exercises are geared toward helping children have increased success across settings throughout the day, including school, social interactions with peers, and everyday routines encountered at home. Occupational therapists focus on multiple layers of functioning that will help with your child’s movement throughout their day.

How Can an Occupational Therapist
Help Your Child?

The goal of Occupational Therapy is to help children succeed in life now and as they grow and thrive—at home, at play, and in school. As children improve their skills and achievement in these areas, they grow more confident, and begin to reach their fullest potential. From learning to complete certain daily tasks such as brushing their hair and dressing themselves to improving physical difficulties such as balance and hand-eye coordination, Occupational Therapy provides emotional, social, and physical remedies that serve as the foundational building-blocks for a child to overcome barriers and experience success.
