What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy helps children improve their motor, physical, sensory, and cognitive skills.
The “just right challenge” provided in occupational therapy enhances kids’ self-esteem and gives them the confidence to develop.

Who can benefit?

We work with children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, genetic disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other neurodevelopmental delays.

We treat kids not labels— so please come for a consultation if you’re not sure.

How Occupational therapy (OT) helps kids:

  • Difficulty with fine and/or gross motor skills —difficulty with jumping, balancing, and general clumsiness.

  • Struggling to keep up with peers in school— not writing, coloring, cutting, opening their lunch or putting on their coat for recess.

  • Difficulty meeting classroom expectations— trouble sitting at circle time, maintaining personal boundaries or staying on task.

  • Meltdowns/ Tantrums and difficulty with self-regulation.

  • Strong reactions to sensory input— covering ears in public restrooms, refusing to wear jeans, having to get socks “just right.”

  • Difficulty with completing ADL’s — demonstrating difficulty with dressing, bathing, or self-feeding.

  • Behavioral challenges.

  • Low self-esteem and/or self-confidence.
