OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Is your child having problems that interfere with his ability to do the things that are important to him (or everyday things)?

 

We can help.

 

ABC Pediatric Therapy occupational therapists can help your child achieve independence with the skills they need to learn and grow...Skills for School, Home, and Every Day Life!

Treatment Approaches

What are our methods used in Occupational Therapy treatment?

  • Planning and goal setting for therapy is performed in conjunction with the caregivers input

  • Use of therapeutic activities and games to work on desired skills (for example a child who needs to work on his/her upper body strength may be given therapy putty games to work on grip strength or engage with the therapist in a tug of war game to work on shoulder stability)

  • Modifications to a child's environment may be helpful (lighting, adaptive equipment, etc.)

  • Use of exercises and engaging games to work on the desired skills needed for functioning

  • Suggestions for home programming or ideas for educators may be provided
