Pediatric Occupational Therapy


Pediatric Occupational Therapy

The occupational therapists at Playful Learning Pediatric Therapy help children participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). We help children with special needs to participate fully in school and social situations and overall lead a happier, healthier, and more meaningful life. Occupational therapy services typically include:

  • an individualized evaluation, during which the parents or guardians and occupational therapist determine the child’s goals,
  • customized intervention to improve the child’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
  • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Occupational therapy services may include recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for parents and caregivers. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the child, and the child is an integral part of the therapy team.

How can children benefit from occupational therapy?

Out occupational therapy team helps many children. Your child may benefit from occupational therapy if they’re struggling with:

  • Playing with others
  • Participating at school or in other social environments
  • Learning independent tasks
  • Developing emotional regulation and resilience

Our team has experience helping children with many common developmental conditions, including developmental delays, autism, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The team also helps children with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, auditory processing disorders, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy, as well as picky eaters.
