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.

  • Self and co-regulation abilities
