Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a profession that strives to promote health and well-being through participating in the activities of everyday life (occupations). Our specialized Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enhancing the individual’s ability to participate in their environment.

In the pediatric population our programs look to evaluate the performance skills of children and help them to develop fine & gross motor, sensory processing and cognitive skills. Our therapists are dedicated in the treatment and management of infants, children and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases.
