In their early years, a child’s main job is to play and learn through play. We help guide that play to set the foundation for lifelong learning and growth through our children's occupational therapy services.
Through occupational therapy, we focus on working towards a child's individualized, personal goals in order for kids to be as independent as possible in all aspects of their daily lives. We specialize in sensory, psychological, social and environmental factors while successfully developing cognitive, physical and fine motor skills. Through a collaborative plan with parents, we work on:
daily self-care skills
visual motor integration
visual perceptual skills
social and peer interaction skills
self-regulation and attention
strength and coordination
early development with infants
We help children with specialized diagnosis such as:
fine motor delay
autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
sensory processing disorder
brachial plexus injury
visual processing disorders
Our team consists of certified therapists in the Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S.) approach to feeding assessment and treatment. S.O.S. is a play-based, non-judgemental approach to feeding that uses natural reinforcers to encourage food exploration. It is designed for kids with feeding sensitivities and weight gain/ growth difficulties and takes into account a wide variety of skills, including posture, motor, sensory, learning, and behavior.
To help children explore different sensory supports, calming techniques and cognitive strategies with self-regulation, we incorporate tools and strategies from Zones of Regulation, a curriculum designed to help children regulate their bodies and emotions, improve impulse control, increase body awareness and increase attention.
We utilize multi-sensory approaches when learning letter formation, in line with Handwriting without Tears, a developmentally-based writing curriculum that addresses all styles of learning, including visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic.
