    Occupational Therapy Services

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, services focus on rehabilitating children, allowing them to return to their daily routines at their highest level of function. Children may benefit from pediatric occupational therapy for:

  • Self-care skills including feeding, dressing, and grooming 
  • Hand strengthening and coordination skills required for activities such as cutting with scissors, coloring, and writing, buttoning, using feeding utensils, etc. 
  • Sensory-motor processing and integration
  • Upper extremity (shoulder, arm and hand) splinting & serial casting
  • Recommendation, training, and use of adaptive equipment
  • Neuro-developmental treatment
  • Visual motor and handwriting skills
  • Pain management
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation for urinary incontinence
  • Wheelchair and equipment evaluation

Hearing Screenings

We offer in-house hearing screenings conducted by one of our certified Speech Language Pathologists. A hearing screening evaluates a person’s ability to hear by measuring the ability of sound to travel through the hearing nerves to the brain. Hearing screenings help determine if there is a possible temporary or permanent hearing loss.  The screening is typically a hand raising game an audiologist or certified Speech Language Pathologist administers in approximately 10 minutes. Most screening tools yield a “pass” or “did not pass” if there are soft sounds that are not heard. If a child did not pass the screening, a comprehensive full hearing test is typically recommended. Normal hearing in children is important for normal language development.  If a child has hearing problems, it can cause problems with their ability to learn, speak, or understand language. Many insurance companies require up-to-date hearing screenings in order to authorize services.

Each day will consist of sensory activities to develop sensory skills required for tolerating textures; oral motor activities to develop necessary motor skills for chewing, swallowing, and drinking; food exploration activities; and a hierarchical introduction of proteins, starches, fruits, and vegetables.
