Pediatric Occupational Therapy to Support Your Child
What is pediatric occupational therapy?
Occupational Therapists help to bridge the gap between where a children's disability or delay may affect their function, or role of being a child. Occupational therapists work with children in a variety of settings including early intervention services (PIC), pre-schools, schools (K-12), outpatient pediatric therapy clinics, mental health care facilities, behavioral health facilities, and hospitals. Occupational therapists support children with fine and visual motor skills (handwriting), self-care and activities of daily living, sensory processing, behavior management, emotional regulation, play skills, social participation, coordination, ocular motor skills, et cetera.

We provide community-based therapy to support carryover of the skills we work on in the clinic to the community. We are located on the edge of Cuddy Park and utilize the park in many of our therapy sessions throughout the year. For example, we use the park to work on bike riding, using a scooter, cross country skiing, ice skating, and safety in the community. We also regularly meet families/clients at other places in the community including at aquatic centers, grocery stores, parks, gyms, and the zoo. Click the button to learn more!
High School Transition Support
We provide therapy to transition-aged youth with disabilities (16-24 years of age) to promote the development of skills they may need to successfully transition out of high school. These skills relate to independent living, post-secondary education, community participation, and/or employment. Examples of these include cooking, money management, community mobility, hygiene/self-care, household management/chores, social participation, and any tasks related to gaining and maintaining employment. We are working to develop pre-employment training opportunities in the community with various business partners. Contact us today and/or click the button to learn more!
Trauma-Informed Occupational Therapy
Children that experience trauma, especially during crucial periods of development, may have motor and other developmental delays that may impact their function. As occupational therapists, we are trained to help bridge the gap where a child's trauma may impact their role of being a child and/or their function. Click the button to learn more!
