Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence and promotes development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills and visual motor skills that children need to function and socialize in their home, school, play and community environments. In the case of an injury or debilitating illness, our services focus on rehabilitating children, allowing them to return to their daily routines at their highest level of function.
Occupational therapy may be used to treat the following conditions:
- Autism-related disorders
- Sensory-motor disorders
- Upper extremity (shoulder, arm and hand) injuries including brachial plexus injuries, burns, fractures, etc.
- Developmental disabilities
- Down syndrome and other genetic diagnoses
- Cerebral palsy and other neurological diagnoses
- Traumatic brain injury
- Delays in fine motor and visual motor skills directly affecting academic performance
