Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy practitioners are skilled professionals whose education includes the study of child development. They provide a treatment approach with specific emphasis on the vestibular, sensory and fine motor components of a child's skills. We have O.T.'s which are S.I.P.T. certified. The Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) measures the sensory processing or perception that is related to academic achievement, language development, and social behavior in children. 

 

Occupational Therapy may include:
  • Customized treatment programs to improve a child's ability to perform daily activites such as feeding and dressing
  • Adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training
  • Guidance to caregivers on how to integrate therapeutic activities into the child's daily routine
  • Sensory Integration Activities
  • Interactive Metronome
