What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy (O.T.) focuses on achieving functional independence through therapeutic interventions addressing perceptual motor skills, fine motor skills, strength, coordination, sensory integration/sensory processing, and self-care activities. O.T.’s promote and develop a child’s participation in everyday activities and facilitate a child’s independence. An Occupational Therapist may help a child who is experiencing difficulty with self-care (dressing, bathing, brushing teeth, hair care, hand washing), body and spatial awareness, handwriting, coloring, fine motor coordination, modulation, and regulation of sensory input from movement, touch/textures, sounds, sights, tastes, play and social skills. Our Occupational Therapists utilize a variety of treatment techniques and equipment in a safe and fun environment to achieve age appropriate functional goals.
At STARS Pediatric Therapy, we believe every child shines and has potential to play, move, learn, and develop into a happy and functional individual. We provide children, newborn to age 12 years, with quality therapy programs addressing each child’s individual needs. Our licensed pediatric therapists assist with the diagnosis, treatment and management of a variety of congenital, developmental, learning challenged, neuromuscular skeletal or acquired disorders.
Occupational Therapy can enhance a family’s capacity to care for their child and promote his or her development.
Physical Therapy can support families in promoting their child’s development, learning, and participation in family and community life.
