Occupational therapy (OT) helps individuals to develop, recover, or maintain their daily living and work skills. Occupational therapy is also aimed at those with physical, sensory and cognitive disabilities such as ADHD, Autism and Down syndrome.
Occupational therapy is a client-centered practice that places emphasis on the progress towards the client's goals.
The interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities.
Occupational therapy and sensory integration programs work to create balance in the central nervous system in the brain and senses. This helps children with difficulties such as balance problems, loud noise intolerance, excessive sensitivity of touch, movement and sight.
Our Occupational Therapists are educated and trained to conduct several assessments and accordingly will design an individualized therapy program to work on different areas such as:
Fine Motor Skills
Gross Motor Skills
Visual Perceptual Skills
Daily living skills
Attention and/or Hyperactivity
Occupational therapists also focus much on their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities.
