Occupational Therapy

  • Occupational Therapy works with your child's individual needs so that they can be successful when

    performing activities within their school, home and community setting.  OT addresses the physical,

    cognitive, psychosocial and sensory components of performance.  OT also specializes in activity and

    environmental analysis and modification in order to give your child an optimal chance to participate,

    engage, and succeed in the activities expected of them.  OT will work with your child to target and 

    improve specific skills and/or adapt the task to fit to their strengths.  The goal of OT is to increase their

    independence in the classroom; eating at lunch time; transitional/work skills, and regulating their

    senses to improve their attention to the world around them. The following are a few topics that

    Occupational Therapy addresses:
