We use a variety of treatment approaches, one of which is sensory processing – the ability of the brain and the body to take incoming sensory information and create an efficient motor output. Our therapists will develop appropriate home activities and family education in addition to direct treatment for your child.
Our Occupational Therapists are here to help your child:
- Improve their sensitivity toward their environment
- Pay better attention
- Improve fine motor skills
- Improve gross motor skills
- Learn to calm themselves
- Keep better focus on their activities
- Improve play skills
- Develop socially
- Learn self care skills
- Be better able to function independently
- Better transition in a changing environment
Treating your child includes examining, evaluating, and assessing the areas in which your child may have difficulty functioning and then incorporating activities to address these areas. After examining your child, our professional therapists will make an evaluation of their findings using a combination of standardized tests, observations, and/or clinical expertise.
