What We Do

Occupational Therapy helps children to be successful at the “jobs” of childhood; such as play, social interactions, self-care, and academic performance. Occupational Therapy can help children and their families improve cognitive, motor, and sensory skills to facilitate and support independence and fulfillment in their participation in expected daily routines across multiple settings. Occupational therapists work by teaching, modeling, and adapting environments, activities, and materials to identify, modify, and overcome challenges that are preventing a child from reaching their fullest potential.
