Personalized Care and Guidance
Our Sensory Integration (SI) Certified Therapists will work closely with you and your child to determine his or her sensory needs. Our OT will expose your child to sensory stimulating environments through repetitive functional tasks and play activities. The OT gradually makes activities more challenging and complex to encourage graded responses. The idea is that through repetition, your child’s nervous system will respond in a more “organized” way to sensations and movement.
Our professional team is here to guide our clients and their families every step of the way throughout their journeys. Our goal is to help our clients learn adaptive ways to manage their feelings and use appropriate prosocial behaviors. Together we build safe living environments.
There are many ways in which our occupational therapists may be able to support your child's developing social skills, including:
Breaking down the task into more manageable units...
Using your child's interests to engage with others...
Modifying the environment to facilitate appropriate social behaviors...
Acknowledging the different stages of play to reinforce social interaction skills, such as turn taking, eye contact, sharing...
Handwriting and Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills involve all of the small muscles of the body: more specifically those that control precise movements of the hands, wrists, feet, toes, lips, and tongue. The small muscles of the hands and fingers are the most important for developing handwriting skills. Our Therapists will work with your child to strengthen grasp and/ or provide adaptive equipment to improve quality of written work.
Feeding therapy is more than just “teaching a child to eat.” Our feeding certified therapists work closely with clients and their families to determine the source of the his or her difficulties and develop very specific strategies to make the entire process of eating easier and more enjoyable.
