“Occupational Therapy? But my child doesn’t have a job!” Just as occupational
therapy helps adults perform better at their jobs, it helps children succeed in
important areas of their lives. This includes helping children build the skills
required for essential daily activities such as play, rest and sleep, activities of daily
living, education. Occupational therapy practitioners support and promote the
development and engagement of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and their
families or other caregivers, in everyday routines.
Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence while also
strengthening the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual
motor skills that children need to function and socialize.
Our team of occupational therapists look at children from a holistic perspective.
We try to determine where delays or limitations are coming from, especially in the
areas of fine motor skills, cognitive skills, social development, and establishing
self-care routines. Together, these skills lead to children being able to grow into
healthy, well-functioning adults. We use a playful approach to make the infant,
toddler and child learn the desired skills.
