Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapy focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults. Physical impairment, injuries & a host of other issues are treated.   We realize that a child’s job or occupation is to play, be independent in self-care activities, and succeed in school.  Our Occupational therapists treat children who have disorders that may inhibit their ability to be successful in these areas.  Our occupational therapists will address this by teaching fine motor activities (how to hold and manipulate objects), visual-motor activities (eye hand coordination), activities to increase upper body strength and endurance, teach the body how to appropriately respond to sensory information and self-care skills.
