Occupational therapy is concerned with the child’s ability to participate in desired daily life activities or “occupations”.
Occupational therapists use their unique expertise to support the achievement of developmental and learning outcomes for children. They facilitate social skills development, motor development, emergent literacy, and the development of adaptive and self care skills.
Occupational therapists are particularly skilled in helping children access curricular activities by contributing to the design and planning of activities, including identifying any needed accommodations or modifications. They play a key role in training parents, caregivers and school staff members about the development of children with diverse learning needs.
At Children in Motion, occupational therapists specialize in the assessment and treatment of children with a variety of conditions, including premature birth, low-birth weight, congenital anomalies, neurological disorders, sensory processing difficulties, neuromuscular disease, prenatal drug exposure, autism and hand and upper extremity dysfunction.
Services address feeding skills, sensory integration, motor development, environmental exploration, play skills, adaptive behavior and interactions between the child and the caregiver.
