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.
“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.”
— Kay Redfield Jamison
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 approach with parents, we work on:
- Daily Self-Care Skills
- Visual Motor Integration
- Visual Perceptual Skills
- Social & Peer Interaction Skills
- Self-Regulation & Attention
- Sensory Orocessing
- Strength & Coordination
- Motor Planning
- Early Development with Infants
Helping Children w/ Specialized Diagnosis Such As:
- Developmental Delay
- Fine Motor Delay
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Cerebral Palsy
- Motor Incoordination
- Down Syndrome
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Chromosomal Abnormalities
- Visual Processing Disorders
- Learning Delays
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.
“My son’s progress since he first started has been tremendous!. His motor skills, physical skills and speaking skills are increasing everyday. We will work collectively as one to continue help his development together.”
“My son has been doing fantastically! He has improved so much. My family and friends see such a big difference in his speech. He has started using full sentences and he also opens up a lot more to his peers. My husband and I feel so elated that he has improved so much, thank you Lumiere!.“
“Lumiere brought our family PEACE and we will never forget that; we are forever grateful to everyone there who is a part of our son’s life.“
