About Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists provide interventions to children who have, or are at risk of having, developmental delays and are experiencing difficulties functioning in one or more areas of their lives. Therapy may include facilitating performance of coordinated motor skills and/or use of the hands, as well as promoting skills for listening and following directions, self-regulation, social play, dressing, and grooming. Some other areas of focus may include helping children improve abstract reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making, and perceptual skills, as well as memory, sequencing, and motor planning. All of these skills are crucial for independent living and success across many environments.
