Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Pediatric Occupational Therapy specializes in helping infants, children, and young adults up to age 21, maximize their abilities to achieve the greatest possible degree of functional independence in all areas of their lives.

Occupational Therapy uses purposeful and goal-directed activities in conjunction with play to improve function, enhance mastery of skills, foster positive self-esteem/confidence, and promote engagement, interactions, and involvement in daily life.  

Our occupational therapists are highly trained to assess and provide treatment to children from birth to 21 years of age. We understand that all children are unique and not everyone fits into a specific therapy model, so by individualizing treatments we are able to provide the most effective intervention for each patient.

Children we provide intervention for may have a diagnosis which includes:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Fragile X

  • Down Syndrome

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Developmental Delay

  • Prematurity

  • Pre-Natal Drug Exposure
