Occupational Therapy supports our children in unlocking and identifying the tools necessary to succeed in their occupation. A child’s occupation is centered around enhancing and developing play skills, developmental milestones, fine and gross motor skills, feeding and mealtime routines, daily living skills and regulating our sensory systems, all beautiful parts of being a child.  

 

Through utilizing methods that are as unique as each child, our team understands the importance of our sensory system in building a strong foundation to aid in each child’s overall learning and development as a whole. It is with this strong foundation that we are able to scaffold and create higher-level learning opportunities within the home, center, classroom and community around us.
