Occupational Therapy

What is occupational therapy?

Our pediatric Occupational Therapists evaluate a child’s current skills for playing, motor and neuromuscular performance, and daily activities. Occupational Therapists help maximize a child’s daily life skills, which include play, peer interaction, and self-care activities by addressing sensory, social, motor, and environmental issues.

How Can We Help?

Occupational Therapists are highly trained healthcare professionals that evaluate and assist children that are having difficulty participating in meaningful activities or “occupations that are needed to conduct their daily routines and live their life to the fullest. Some areas that occupational therapy can help with include:

• Fine motor skills . Gross motor skills

• Motor planning skills

• Sensory processing difficulties

• Visual motor and visual perceptual skills

• Self-care

• Decreased strength

• Social emotional difficulties

Collaborative Approach

At EAS, we have the ability to interact with an interdisciplinary team by having in-house experts in ABA Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech/Language Therapy all within the same clinic. We value collaboration with caregivers, teachers, and therapists outside of EAS and realize that collaboration is essential in creating effective carry-over from our clinic to the home and school.

Our therapists work with a wide variety of abilities. We enjoy working with any child who needs extra support to meet his/her full potential!
