What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy can help children with various needs improve their motor, physical, sensory, and cognitive skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
A child's main job is playing and learning, and occupational therapists can evaluate kids' skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.
Who can benefit?
We work with children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, genetic disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other developmental delays.
