Occupational Therapy

The focus of therapy may include the prevention of malformations, the facilitation of normal development, the promotion of age-appropriate daily living skills, design, fabrication and application of splints, training for use of assistive technology devices and/or adaptation of the environment.

The primary concern is allowing the child to experience the highest level of independence in his or her environment. Specific skills that pediatric occupational therapy may focus on include: dressing, bathing, hygiene, feeding, meal preparation, negotiation through the environment, ability to recognize letters and numbers, and writing as well as any tasks that the child is required to complete in their day in order to be independent.

As pediatric professionals, our occupational therapists are highly experienced with the unique needs of patients from birth through 21 years of age. They are familiar with the developmental milestones that are normally attained at each stage in a child’s life and are adept at encouraging and motivating patients to reach their goals.

Our Pediatric Occupational Therapy Program provides services to children with a wide range of diagnoses including, but not limited to:

  • Brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Sensory integration disorders
  • Learning disabilities
  • Feeding disorders
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Hand and upper extremity dysfunction
  • Spinal cord rehabilitation
  • Bracheal plexus injuries
  • Developmental delays
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
  • Sports injuries
