Occupational Therapy for Children
Problems with motor skills, the ability to process sensory information, visual perception skills, and other factors prevent many children from performing daily activities. Through “targeted play,” we work with children to help them overcome these difficulties.
Indications that an evaluation may be needed include:
- Gross motor problems, such as walking, running, jumping, and skipping
- Fine motor problems, including difficulty manipulating small objects, using scissors, and fastening clothing
- Low muscle tone in the mouth, hands, legs, arms, and problems with posture
- Over-sensitivity or under-reaction to touch, movement, sights, and sounds
- Constant movement or slowness in becoming active
- Impulsiveness and/or distractibility
- Difficulty adjusting to new situations
- Delays in developing speech, language, motor skills, and/or academic achievement
- Handwriting problems
