Children are constantly developing, and their development should be the paramount concern when it comes to therapy. In fact, when it comes to pediatric therapy, development is often the very reason why therapy is so important. Through a comprehensive evaluation, our therapists will build a treatment plan for treatment specifically tailored to your child’s needs. The focus of therapy is to improve functional skills by incorporating sensory motor, psychosocial, and self-care practices that are required for a child to move toward independence.
Our therapists use play, exercise and adaptation of environment to help children overcome delays or difficulties. We also work with the entire family, as the participation of family members increases the child’s potential for success.
We concentrate on skills needed for daily routines such as:
- Sensory processing and organization
- Gross and fine motor skills
- Coordination and balance
- Therapeutic play
- Hand use development
- Visual perceptual and visual motor skills
- Academic skills such as following directions, problem solving, handwriting and computer basics
- Self-care skills such as feeding, dressing, and toileting
- Recommendation, training, and use of adaptive equipment
- Socialization skills
- Development of self-esteem
