Occupational Therapy For Children

The goal of Occupational Therapy is to foster appropriate responses to sensation in an active, meaningful, and fun way so the child is able to behave in a more functional manner. Over time, the appropriate responses generalize to the environment beyond the clinic including home, school, and the larger community. Effective occupational therapy thus enables patients to participate in an active life.

Sensory Integration

Sensory integration is a specialty area of occupational therapy that is based on over 40 years of theory and research. The term "sensory integration" refers to the way the brain organizes sensations for engagement in activities. Sensory Integration may vary depending on the needs of your child and the type of sensory input he/she needs. Our Occupational Therapists will work with your child to both challenge him/her and enable his/her success. In these sessions, the therapists will advise on how to practice sensory integration in your home.
