Pediatrics Occupational Therapy

Child writingOccupational therapists promote and support the development and engagement of your children in everyday routines. These routines include play, sleep, social participation, day-to-day activities, and education.

Our services include:

  • Evaluating your child’s developmental and learning needs.
  • Enhancing your child’s learning ability to improve school performance.
  • Providing strategies to facilitate full participation in daily routines such as getting dressed and feeding.
  • Reducing environmental barriers that limit a child’s participation in family, learning, and social activities.
  • Help developing motor, visual, and coordination skills.
  • Helping children with their handwriting
  • Educating parents on what they can do at home for ongoing progress.
