Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Empowering Young Lives Through Playful Progress

What is Occupational Therapy (OT):

Occupational Therapy (OT) provides skilled treatment to those that need assistance to enhance or enable participation in areas of daily life. OT focuses on increasing functional independence and participation in everyday occupations by assisting in skill attainment or adaptations for many areas that a child needs and wants to do in their natural environments. Areas that an OT can address are: activities of daily living (ADLs), instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), sensory integration, self regulation, play skills, fine motor skills, visual motor skills, coordination, praxis, and executive functioning. These skills help a child reach developmental milestones, and learn or master skills that can improve their daily lives to participate in opportunities at home, in school, and in their community. 

Conditions Treated:

  • Developmental delay
  • Visual motor deficits
  • Executive functioning
  • Sensory Processing 
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Handwriting
  • Limb difference

How we treat:

Each plan of care for OT is unique, and addresses the child as a whole unit. An individualized assessment helps identify areas of need to ensure holistic care to meet a child where they are, and how to build skills and confidence in their natural environments. Being able to establish a partnership with therapists and families in order to address strengths and challenges in the child’s day to day life is an important part of treatment with a focus on family-centered care. In pediatric occupational therapy treatment, it is beneficial to use a child-centered approach where play is a meaningful component to gain confidence, skills, and improve motivation of children to achieve their goals.
