Occupational Therapy encourages a child to enjoy play and use play as a means to develop his daily independence. Occupational therapy works on the child’s developmental skills: motor, cognitive, social, language, self-help and behavior. Occupational therapists analyze the child’s behavior and response to different aspects of play and its meaning to the child.
Through play, a child may be able to functionally perform basic living skills such as eating, dressing, grooming, bathing and social interactions. The occupation of childhood is to develop the skills necessary to become functional and independent adults.
Our occupational therapists are certified in programs including Masgutova Neuro-sensory Reflex Integration (MNRI), Sensory Oral Sequential Feeding Approach (SOS), Handwriting without Tears, and have significant experience in generating sensory diets and home programs.
