A pediatric occupational therapist helps a child develop, maintain, and restore abilities to become independent within their daily lives. Occupational therapists are trained to provide holistic treatment by analyzing a child’s skills, environment, context, body functions, and occupation (meaningful activities). Our approach to treatment is based on occupational therapy theories and frame of references.
At OTAP, we are dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of infants, children, and young adults. OTAP focuses on treating the “whole child” using a multi-sensory developmental approach. We work with children of all ages with any developmental challenges from coordination disorders to problems with self-regulation, sensory processing, social skills and difficulties at school. At OTAP, each child learns the fundamentals necessary to create a foundation for learning so that they can build on their strengths and experience success.
OTAP believes that parents and caregivers are an integral part of the therapy process. We provide with on site trainings following all treatment sessions for increased carryover of services in the home. We work closely with school staff to increase carryover in the educational environment.
