Occupational therapists look at a person holistically and all the activities that take place in the person’s life. Occupational therapists help people live fuller and richer lives by encouraging them to participate fully and independently in all areas of life.
Depending on each child’s needs, our therapists use a combination of top down and bottom up approaches. Top down approaches include organized instruction, skill teaching, and reasoning skills. Therapists also use a sensory processing framework to help children process information from the environment more effectively.
Therapy is done in a fun way, using age appropriate play based activities. Learning is structured to suit each child’s unique sensory processing abilities to ensure that learning takes place in a fun and stress free environment. Therapists also provide home activities for parents to follow up at home. This way, progress in therapy is accelerated.
