Children's Services

Occupational Therapy Focus

Occupational therapy sessions use multi-sensory activities to promote sensory processing, bilateral tool usage, fine motor strength and dexterity, as well as handwriting, keyboarding and tech strategies. Sessions can also work to develop self-regulation skills and strategies for managing stress, handling difficult emotions, and development of coping skills to navigate challenging social situations. For those with low tone or decreased postural strength, gross motor obstacles courses are created, strengthening activities are facilitated. Finally, we offer consultation with families related to home programs and coach parents and caregivers about areas of need or concern.

First time participants must either schedule an Occupational Therapy evaluation or submit a recent (within one year) evaluation.    

Types of Services

Traditionally, OT services are offered both individually and within small groups. Due to COVID-19 physical distancing needs, only individual and paired (2 children together) services are available.
