Occupational therapy helps children to develop the fundamental skills necessary for learning and performing daily tasks, along with addressing social and behavioral skills.  Pediatric occupational therapy helps children develop the basic sensory awareness and motor skills needed for self-care, motor development, learning and healthy behavior. These include the following, but not limited to:

  • body awareness (proprioceptive sense)
  • coordination of movements between the two sides of the body (“crossing the midline”)
  • fine motor control and organization
  • motor planning
  • motor movements and coordination
  • gross motor coordination
  • ocular motor skills
  • visual perceptual skills
  • self-regulation
  • sensory modulation (reaction to stimulus)
  • social skills

Here at Children’s Therapy Solutions, our occupational therapists not only work directly with the child but also with the caregivers. They work to educate and reinforce skills and behaviors to increase carryover outside of the clinic for improved performance and functioning in their daily lives.  We work with children with the following diagnoses including, but not limited to:
