What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy (OT) treatment focuses on helping people with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability to be as independent as possible in all areas of life.
Occupational therapy can help kids with various needs to enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
How to Join Occupational Therapy?
Prior to therapy sessions, our Occupational Therapist will assess and analyze why your child is not able to perform the tasks that your child should be doing developmentally. The following areas will be determined in order to establish specific therapeutic targets for your child:
- Sensory Processing Skills
- Motor Planning Skills
- Visual Perceptual skills
- Cognitive Skills

Sensory Processing Disorder
