OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Our occupational therapists utilize the most current evaluation tools and clinical standards in determining the appropriate treatment for each child. We start by communicating directly with parents/guardians to determine the family’s goals and priorities. Then, through individualized evaluations, our therapists find solutions to help maximize independence and increase participation in daily activities, including self-care, learning and play.
