Occupational Therapy for Children

Helping children develop, learn and grow through guided support, collaboration and caregiver education.

How Do Children Learn?

Occupational therapists often work with children to help them to develop their most important occupation, play.  Occupational therapists use play, engagement and interaction to help children to acquire lifelong and developmentally appropriate skills.  Occupational therapists work with children and caregivers to help to grow self-care skills, school-readiness skills, social engagement and most importantly, play.  The GO Therapy model of care helps parents and caregivers to learn how to facilitate their child’s skills within the clinic in collaboration with the therapist and continue to use these skills within the home and other setting.
