What Treatment Do We Provide?
Your occupational therapist will provide a comprehensive evaluation and client-centered treatment plan to help your child reach his or her potential. We collaborate with families and other medical professionals who work closely with your child to ensure a well-rounded team approach to client care. In addition to helping your child meet his or her fine motor, self-care, and handwriting milestones, OTs can provide sensory integration therapy, feeding therapy, and visual-motor therapy. We currently house the Interactive Metronome program, a neurological-based assessment and intervention tool that is designed to improve attention, coordination, and motor planning, among other skills.
