What does Pediatric Occupational and Speech Therapy look like?
When working with children, pediatric occupational and speech therapists incorporate play into practice as a way of motivating children and reducing any anxiety or fears they might feel towards therapy. Play is an important occupation for all age levels. Play in therapy can involve games, toys, puzzles, songs or physical exercises. In all cases, the goal of pediatric occupational therapy is not only to help children adequately progress but to challenge them appropriately, helping to build self-esteem and confidence when it comes to their capabilities and aptitude.
Our Services include:
Occupational and Speech Evaluations
Evidence- based Interventions and Treatment sessions
School-based OT and Speech Evaluations (IEE)
Consult with professional staff
What can children accomplish with OT?
Occupational therapists work with children in the following areas:
improving fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills
addressing hand-eye coordination to improve kids’ play and school skills (hitting a target, batting a ball, copying from a blackboard, etc.)
learning basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)
maintaining positive behaviors in all environments (e.g., instead of hitting others or acting out, using positive ways to deal with anger, such as writing about feelings or participating in a physical activity.
evaluating the need for specialized equipment, such as wheelchairs, splints, bathing equipment, dressing devices, or communication aids
improving attention and social skills to allow development of interpersonal relationships.
