Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapists are skilled health care professionals who are specialized in promoting independence and meaningful occupation in the daily lives of infants, toddlers, teens, and young adults. Our individualized treatment sessions are designed to help children and young adults increase their participation by facilitating independence with a variety of skills such as fine motor/ gross motor, cognitive, sensory-motor, and visual-motor skills. We believe it's essential to work closely with parents and caregivers to achieve carryover across environments. Our occupational therapists serve as coach, educator and role model, giving the parent and caregiver the skills needed to guide and support their children, so they gain the ability to function successfully at home, school and in their community.
