Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on the “occupations” or “jobs” of childhood such as play, socialization, and self-care and school performance. At Personalized Therapy, our pediatric Occupational Therapists help children develop the skills needed for functional independence in these important developmental areas.
Pediatric Occupational Therapy is aimed at the unique needs of each individual child and is provided through meaningful activity, so as to keep the child motivated and invested in the therapeutic process. While pediatric therapy is designed to feel like play to the child, our expertly trained Occupational Therapists draw from strategies in many specialty areas to build upon your child’s progress.
Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on the progression of developmental skills, the use of compensation techniques and/or adaptive equipment as needed, and adapting to the environment. The goal for your child is to promote the greatest level of independence and success during work or play.
