One of our passions is to help children with sensory processing disorder develop both skills and confidence for successful participation in their daily roles; including play, school and self-care. We use movement and sensory based activity during therapy session that are tailored to each individual’s unique interests, strengths and challenges. Successful therapy also requires dedication from family and caregivers. Our experienced staff of occupational therapists work closely with children, parents, teachers and other professionals to gain a fuller understanding of each child’s challenges.
We Are Not Just for Kids
We are also skilled at helping adolescents and adults who have challenges with motor skills or carrying out functional life tasks.
