What is occupational therapy?
Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic use of everyday life activities for the purpose of enhancing or enabling participation in roles, habits, and routines within a variety of settings. Occupational therapists use their knowledge of person, environment, and occupation to improve children's performance and to create occupation-based intervention plans that facilitate change or growth in client factors (body functions, body structures, values, beliefs, and spirituality) and skills (motor, process, and social interaction) needed for successful participation.
How can we help?
Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) & Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL's) Skills - Working towards dressing, bathing, grooming feeding, playing, household chores, money management, meal preparation, and personal safety.
Fine Motor Skills - Developing fine motor skills to successfully master tasks such as writing with a pencil, tying shoes, using scissors and zippers, buttoning buttons, and manipulating toys.
Play: The ability to engage with others, toys and their environment appropriately in order to develop age appropriate skills.
Motor Planning & Coordination: The ability to process/plan, organize, sequence, and execute body movements in a coordinated manner.
Executive Functioning Skills - problem solving, task initiation, working memory, organization, time management, planning/prioritizing, and focus.
Sensory & Emotional Integration - helping your child to modulate their environment with positive coping skills to facilitate functional and healthy behavior across settings; emotional regulation will be assessed based on sensory regulation
Ocular Motor Skills - Developing visual perception and eye control and the ability to recognize objects in order and make adjustments regarding size and spatial relationships.
Visual-Motor & Visual Perceptual Skills - These skills help children visually and cognitively process sequences, shapes, and three-dimensional objects around them as well as help children engage in activities such as writing, cutting, clothing management, and engagement with toys. Occupational Therapists are able to help determine whether a child has difficulty with visual-motor integration, visual perceptual or motor coordination.
Feeding: The ability to interact during mealtimes. Skills that may affect healthy mealtime engagement: sensory, posture, play, development, social interactions and cognition.
