Individual Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy works with your child to achieve optimal function and independence with everyday tasks and activities. Pediatric occupational therapists provide care to children ranging from infancy to adolescence, using play and your child’s areas of interest to increase engagement in social interaction, independence in everyday tasks, and reaching your child’s full potential.

Children may benefit from occupational therapy if they’re struggling with:

  • Playing with others
  • Fully participating at school and home environments
  • Independently completing daily tasks
  • Regulating their emotions

A comprehensive occupational therapy evaluation will assess the maturation of your child’s nervous system, how they process sensory information from the environment, and how independent they are with everyday tasks considering age and functional abilities. Once evaluated, an individualized treatment plan will be created to build the skills needed to reach optimal independence and function at home, school, and in the community.
