Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapists are licensed clinicians trained to work with children and their families to promote participation in functional activities or occupation that are meaningful to them; including fine and gross motor skills, developmentally appropriate play skills and self-help skills.

Our pediatric occupational therapists work with children from birth to age seven. Interpreter services are available.

What to expect:

  • Once a referral is received from your healthcare provider, you will be scheduled for an evaluation with one of our specialized pediatric therapists.
  • The therapist will look closely to determine if motor, visual-motor, visual perception, sensory processing, social-emotional or other areas are contributing to the functional difficulty.
  • Improve motor skills and aid in developmental skills progress.
  • Participate in self-care activities
  • Develop age-appropriate play skills.
  • Skilled support and hands-on techniques to guide your child in learning new skills and overcoming individual challenges.

Contact your healthcare provider to find out if occupational therapy is right for your child.
