Putting the “FUN” back into FUNCTIONAL
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy is the use of everyday activities to develop, recover, or maintain the ability participate in the things that people do everyday. For children this includes, playing, success in school, and self-care skills. Occupational therapy addresses these areas of childrens’ lives by improving their fine and gross motor skills, motor planning, sensory processing skills, visual motor skills, upper body strength, body tone, endurance and self-care skills. Occupational Therapy requires a comprehensive evaluation/assessment in order to develop a individualized treatment plan for each or our clients.
