Occupational therapy treatment focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives and so see children who are experiencing difficulty with everyday tasks due to physical and developmental difficulties. For children to feel that they are fully integrated in both their family and their communities, obtaining a level of functional independence in as many areas as possible can really drive progress forward. This is why occupational therapy is one of our principal therapeutic treatment methods. Here families and children alike are given skills that encourage them to develop independent means of completing daily tasks, giving both the parent and the child a greater sense of freedom.
Our occupational therapists will work closely with you and your child to achieve their optimum independence with the skills needed for daily life. Some of the underlying skills needed for daily independence that our occupational therapists can treat include, but are not limited to: fine motor skills, sensory skills, visual perception and self-help skills. These skills help us to bathe, dress ourselves, eat and drink independently, write and other tasks we need to do everyday.
