Occupational therapy (OT) treatment focuses on helping people with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. OT can help kids with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
Occupational therapy can:
help kids work on fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills
address hand–eye coordination to improve kids' play and school skills (hitting a target, batting a ball, copying from a blackboard, etc.)
help kids with severe developmental delays learn basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)
help kids with behavioral disorders maintain positive behaviors in all environments
work with kids who have sensory and attention issues to improve focus and social skills
We collaborate with an experience Occupational Therapist with more than ten years of experience working with children with special educational needs. She enjoys working with children and believes that multidisciplinary teamwork is important to help the child develop to his or her full potential.
