Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy treatment focuses on helping to support individuals’ independence and self-advocacy
within all areas of their lives. A child’s primary job is to connect with others, play, learn, and experience the
world. Our occupational therapists conduct treatment sessions with sensory integration principles and
techniques, and utilize strengths-based and child-led approaches to provide therapy and address overall
developmental and functional abilities.

Some areas that occupational therapy can help to support include:
• Self and co-regulation abilities
• Sensory processing
• Progression through developmental capacities
• Individualized strategies to help with transitions
• Interoception
• Activities of daily living
• Joyful play
• Feeding differences
• Gross motor abilities
• Fine motor skills
• Visual skills (visual motor, visual perception, ocular motor)
• Encouraging families to create neurodiverse affirming lifestyles
• Parent coaching and home programming for carryover
