Occupational Therapy

Published On 12/04/2012

Occupational therapy focuses on physical, cognitive and perceptual disabilities that influence the child’s ability to perform functional tasks.

Our occupational therapists provide therapies designed to help children perform daily tasks more independently such as

  • playing
  • handwriting
  • feeding
  • dressing
  • bathing

Our occupational therapists evaluate your child’s ability to use his or her:

  • arms, hands and fingers
  • visual perceptual skills
  • thought or cognitive functions
  • hand coordination
  • self-care skills

We also evaluate a child’s ability to process the sensory information around him and how his senses affect his participation in daily activities.

Our team may use adaptive equipment, splinting, modalities and sensory diets as part of the prescribed treatment.

All outpatient occupational therapy services require a referral from the primary care physician or pediatrician.
