Rehab-gymA child’s life is made up of “occupations,” or daily activities, such as playing, learning, self-cares, and socializing with their peers. Occupational therapy practitioners work with children and their families to help them succeed in these activities throughout the day. Our experienced occupational therapists are knowledgeable about stages of development and the milestones in a child’s physical, mental, and behavioral development. We develop an individual treatment plan to meet each child’s unique needs through meaningful activity in order to keep the child motivated and invested throughout the therapeutic process. It might look and feel like play, but our therapists draw from a broad range of specialized techniques and skills to progress your child’s skills and development. The ultimate goal for your child is to develop the greatest level of independence and success in their daily lives.
