Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy focuses on bringing the child to the best level of functional performance in both home and school settings. Occupational therapy can help in improving gross and fine motor skills, sensory processing, postural control, balancing responses, visual-motor integration, handwriting, and activities of daily living. Intervention starts with an assessment using clinical observations and standardized testing.

Various therapy approaches are implemented to maximize function. Our fully equipped Sensory Integration gyms are used to accelerate your child’s development.

SIPT

SIPT stands for Sensory Integration and Praxis Test. This test evaluates sensory processing deficits related to learning and behavior problems. The SIPT measures visual, tactile, and kinesthetic perception as well as motor performance. It is composed of 17 subtests.

The SIPT test is a comprehensive and standardized test and it can specifically delineate processing challenges which may be contributing to difficulties in learning or behavior. Furthermore, in some cases it is useful to prove to insurance companies the need to provide occupational therapy services.
