Children’s Therapy Concepts is excited to bring Occupational Therapy services to the community.
We use the whole-child approach, working with families to provide a personal, fun, and caring environment. We utilize a variety of sensory, motor, and developmental strategies to ensure your child is working towards achieving developmental goals. Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence while also strengthening the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual motor skills that children need to function, socialize, and participate fully life.
A child’s role in life is to play and interact with other children. Our pediatric occupational therapists evaluate a child’s current skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate. OT’s help children perform daily activities they may find challenging by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues.
Kids with certain medical conditions may benefit. Some conditions are as follows:
- Birth injuries or birth defects
- Sensory processing disorders
- Learning/processing difficulties
- Developmental delays
- Autism/Pervasive developmental disorders
- Cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, or other chronic illnesses
- Traumatic injuries (brain or spinal cord)
- Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
- Mental health or behavioral problems
- Post-surgical conditions
- Spina bifida
- Broken bones or other orthopedic injuries
Occupational Therapists work with children to achieve the following results:
- Help kids with severe developmental delays learn basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)
- Work with kids who have sensory and attention issues to improve focus, self-regulation strategies, and social skills
- Help kids work on fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting, and develop scissor skill
- Address hand-eye coordination to improve kids’ play and school skills (batting a ball, copying from a blackboard, etc.)
- Help kids with behavioral disorders develop self-regulation strategies
- Teach kids with physical disabilities the coordination skills needed to feed themselves, use a computer, or increase the speed and legibility of their handwriting
- Evaluate a child’s need for specialized equipment, such splints, bathing equipment, dressing devices, or communication aids
