They aim to enhance the compatibility between a person’s skills, environment and meaningful activities to improve their performance in these activities. A child engages daily in a variety of activities that require essential skills to complete them. These skills include fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, visual perception, motor coordination and others. Occupational Therapists can recognize a child’s/family’s area of concerns and works collaboratively as a team towards meeting appropriate developmental milestones. We focus on enabling a child to complete meaningful activities as independently as possible by targeting the root causes of issues. We address: - Developmental Milestones (reaching, grasping, sitting, etc.) - Fine Motor/Hand Skills (zippers, buttons, laces, scissors, etc.) - Writing Skills (letter formation/reversals, legibility, typing, etc.) - Sentence Composition (putting thoughts down on paper, etc.) - Pencil Grasp & Control (proper hand & arm positioning, etc.) - Feeding (swallowing, utensil use, food textures, etc.) - Organizational Skills (strategies for home & school, etc.) - Attention (ADD, ADHD, fidgetiness, focusing on tasks, etc.) - Planning & Executing Activities (coordination, balance, etc.) - Upper Extremity Strength & Control (bilateral integration, etc.) - Sensory Needs (autism spectrum, over/under stimulation, etc.) - Visual Skills (visual perception, eye movement & tracking, etc.) Call us to speak directly with a therapist and we will be happy to answer your questions and address your concerns.
