Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy 

Sometimes the basic tasks of everyday living – such as buttoning a jacket or picking up a fork – can be complicated. Our specialized occupational therapists can help your child learn or relearn the skills of daily life used at home and in school.

We start with a thorough evaluation of their abilities, then develop a tailored treatment plan that's unique to their needs. We’re constantly working to help enhance their independence.
