Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps children develop all the skills they need for the many “jobs” they must participate in each day. These include skills in play, self-care (dressing, brushing teeth), motor, and interacting with others. Intervention is oriented to your child’s needs and may focus on sensory integration theory. Play, motivation and a child’s inner-drive is valued and appreciated at Children’s Therapy.
