What is Occupational Therapy?

A pediatric occupational therapist (OT) teaches children fundamental life skills using their primary occupation, “play.” OT’s help your child develop age appropriate gross motor, fine motor, and visual motor skills, as well as a mature sensory processing system. Early intervention of delays or difficulties within these areas is imperative. Occupational therapy prepares your child with a solid foundation for success within daily activities at home, school, and the community.

Our occupational therapists help children with:

  • Reaching developmental milestones (including gross motor, fine motor, and visual motor skills)

  • Sensory processing difficulties

  • Emotional regulation

  • Adapting sports and other extracurricular activities for inclusion within the community

  • Activities of daily living and other functional skills

  • Behavior management

  • Reflex integration

  • Social skills

  • Sensory based feeding difficulties (picky eating habits)

  • And more…
