Occupational therapy addresses a wide variety of developmental processes, including sensory processing, motor development, visual motor integration, and social/cognitive skills to improve function across daily occupations.  Occupations are any activity or process that allows the child to engage in daily living. This can include:

• Addressing sensory integration and processing to support self-regulation 

• Developing awareness and strategies to promote optimal engagement and attention 

• Motor development for strength and coordination related to body awareness, postural control, isolation of upper body movement, and fine motor skills

• Establishing motor planning or praxis to address sequencing and motor planning of skill development impacting motor learning and routines

• Integrating visual motor skills for work production(handwriting/typing) and tool use (pencils, scissors)

• Supporting self-feeding, including oral motor skills and hand-to-mouth feeding

• Exploring modifications, accommodations, and assistive technology to support independence.

• Providing strategies for parents and caregivers for home activities to increase a child’s independence

Our occupational therapist will perform a thorough evaluation in order to develop an individualized treatment program targeting specific areas of need.  A family-centered approach will incorporate support, teaching, and suggestions to improve daily living.
