Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy in the field of pediatrics is the “work” of a child. From the time your baby is born there are many developmental milestones he/she must achieve. As Occupational Therapists, it is our job to help your child be successful in his/her “work” every day. Some of that work may include but not be limited to: feeding himself, getting dressed, strengthening his arm and hand muscles, learning his shapes, numbers, colors, learning how to hold a crayon or pencil, use scissors, color a picture, play with a toy using two hands, or even sit in a chair. There can be many reasons why any of these tasks are difficult for your child. It is our hope that, working together with you, we can make many of the everyday struggles your child faces easier and increase his independence as much as possible.
