Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps children meet the challenges of daily life in the areas of:

  1. Self-care - feeding, dressing, toileting, hygiene
  2. Productivity in Play - use of toys, exploring the environment
  3. School-related Activities - holding a pencil, cutting with scissors, printing, writing, and drawing
  4. Leisure - involvement in community activities

Our occupational therapists enable children to become more independent by improving their physical strength as well as their gross and fine motor skills, such as balance and grasping. Therapists also develop visual motor skills, such as hand-eye coordination, and sensory abilities.
