Occupational therapists help children succeed in meeting the daily occupations of childhood (play, school, and self-help skills) to address issues processing sensory input. These children misinterpret everyday sensory information, such as touch, movement and sound. Kids may feel sensory overload. This can lead to difficulties with motor coordination, social/emotional challenges, school difficulties, behavioral problems, and other issues. Our occupational Therapists have advanced training in assessing and treating sensory processing and sensory integration disorders focusing on:.
- Fine motor skills for grasping and releasing
- Address hand-eye coordination
- Work on basic development tasks – bathing, dressing, brushing hair or teeth)
- Work through behavioral disorders
- Coordination skills
- Sensory and attentional issues
- Swallowing, Feeding and Oral Motor Difficulties
