Occupational therapy helps children develop age-appropriate independence in activities of daily living, including the fine motor skills and sensory modulation needed for eating, writing, dressing, self-care and play. Occupational therapy also helps children cope with sensory aversions, including picky eating or avoidance of certain textures or sounds.
Growing Skills for Life.
Feeding and Eating
We offer support for feeding and eating skill development beginning with table food. We also support self-feeding and problem feeding challenges using the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) feeding approach.
Fine Motor Development
We assist children in developing the coordination and awareness necessary for using hands in daily use. For example, buttoning, zipping, holding a crayon, as well as developmentally appropriate play.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual motor integration involves coordination between eyes and hands. As part of your therapy we will develop age-appropriate skills, such as coloring, cutting, kicking a ball, maintaining balance and working on puzzles.
Sensory integration is the interpretation of the senses in one’s environment. We support your child’s unique sensory processing system by helping you understand their processing and developing a plan to meet their needs.
