Promoting Independence and Daily Living.

According to the American Occupation Therapy Association, occupational therapists are uniquely qualified to address both the mental and physical health of children with autism. Occupational therapists are professionals trained on guiding individuals living with disability, illness or injury to improve and promote independence through activities of daily living.

Individualized Programs.

Occupational therapists work with parents and teachers to gather reports and observe children to see if they can perform tasks at their expected age such as eating, dressing, grooming, toileting, motor skills, play skills, and responses to touch or stimuli. As well as attention span and ability to transition to new activities. After gathering the information, the occupational therapist can develop an individualized program for your child that includes targeted areas for improvement and strategies to assist with coping with transitions.

Our occupational therapy may combine a variety of strategies into one unique program to help your child respond better to their environment ultimately enhancing their quality of life.
