Occupational therapy is a form of intervention in which the therapist and child work to develop or improve necessary skills for daily living through activity. Therapy can target skills needed for coordination, school readiness and performance, self-help such as feeding, dressing, grooming, focus and attention, play/social interaction, eye-hand coordination, calming, self-regulation and more. We use a variety of treatment approaches one of which is Sensory Integration Therapy. Sensory Integration is the ability of the brain and body to take incoming sensory information and create an efficient motor output. Your therapist will develop appropriate home programming and family education in addition to direct treatment of your child.
Physical Therapy focuses on improving a child's independence with mobility by improving gait, coordination, strength and balance. In addition, the therapist may provide home programs to improve range of motion and assist with orthotics and mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs.
Speech therapy assists children in improving their expressive language, the ability to use words to express themselves and receptive language or the ability to understand words spoken as well as social interaction. A variety of fun activities are used to enhance communication and promote developmentally appropriate language.
