Occupational Therapy​

What does pediatric occupational therapy entail? 

Pediatric occupational therapy focuses on increasing your child’s level of participation in all the activities of their daily life. From teaching your child to sit still, play basketball or fasten buttons, occupational therapists can work with your child to make sure their needs are met in the areas of self-care, play, school/academic-related skills, attention and regulation.

  • Gross and Fine Motor Delays

  • Handwriting difficulties

  • Developmental Delays

  • Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)/dyspraxia
