Occupational Therapists identify and treat children who have challenges in the skills necessary for daily living. This can include any of the following areas: dressing, toileting, fine/gross motor skills, playing, social skills and self-regulation. Treatment strategies include sensory-motor activities, play and functional activities. Children learn best through play, so skills are often learned through play activities.
Treatment options include:
• Regulation of arousal levels
• Refinement of sensory processing
• Development of communication skills
• Enhancement of language and cognitive skills
• Age-appropriate self-care skills
• Motor planning skills
• Hand/eye coordination
• Muscle strengthening
• Behavior modification

Your child’s treatment plan will be based on his or her exact needs.
