Our occupational therapists provide interventions to children who have, or are at risk of having, developmental delays and are experiencing difficulties functioning in one or more areas of their lives. Occupational therapy may include facilitating performance of coordinated motor skills and/or use of the hands, as well as promoting skills for listening and following directions, self-regulation, social play, dressing, and grooming. Some other areas of focus may include helping children improve abstract reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making and perceptual skills, as well as memory, sequencing and motor planning. All of these skills are crucial for independent living and success across many environments.
We will work with your child’s primary care physician to provide rehabilitative services designed to restore mobility and decrease pain. Physical therapy may be indicated to further develop motor skills such as sitting, crawling, walking or balancing. Other issues that may be addressed are a loss of range of motion, flexibility, or strength, possibly due to injury, illness or surgery. Our physical therapists, with special training in pediatric medical conditions, will evaluate a patient’s specific needs and design a unique program to address functional deficits.
Our experts treat communication challenges, both expressive and receptive, that cause children to have difficulty with verbal communication. In speech-language therapy, we will work with a child one-on-one, in a small group, or directly in a classroom to overcome difficulties involved with a specific disorder. Our therapists use a variety of strategies, including language intervention activities, articulation therapy and oral-motor/ feeding and swallowing therapy.
