What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy (OT) is the profession that addresses the “occupation” of living at any age by promoting health and well-being and enabling individuals to participate in the activities of everyday life. Our therapists work in a clinic-based pediatric setting to address needs including self-care skills (e.g. dressing, hygiene, and grooming), feeding abilities, fine motor skills, visual-motor and visual-perceptual skills, grapho-motor/handwriting, sensory processing and sensory-regulation.
Occupational Therapy is provided by licensed Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants. Occupational Therapists are trained to assess sensory needs, functional levels, handwriting, feeding, and self help skills. Occupational Therapy sessions are tailored to meet each child’s unique needs. They use a variety of modalities through developmentally appropriate play, arts/crafts, table top activities, life skills, sensory activities, strengthening, sensory integration, therapeutic listening, and games to achieve their optimal functional level.
