At River Pediatric Therapies our occupational therapists are ready to help your child improve their “skills for the job of living”, in other words, PLAY!


River Occupational Therapists are trained to look at the whole child- including the psychological, physical, emotional, social, and sensory abilities. We are here to help your child; achieve their goals, function at their highest possible level, maintain and/or rebuild their independence and participate in everyday activities that bring meaning to their lives. For children, this may include playing, writing in the classroom, or feeding or dressing themselves.


Our occupational therapists work with children with a

wide range of abilities and our therapy focuses on:


Organizational skills

Strength, range of motion and coordination

Sensory motor training

Development of activities of daily living skills

Development of fine motor skills and handwriting

Personalized activity schedules

Visual perception skills and visual motor skills

One of our licensed and certified occupational therapists will meet with you for a brief consultation to gather information about your concerns. As the evaluation unfolds, a treatment plan will be formulated to provide the “just right” challenges to improve skills for your child’s home and educational performances. Once the treatment plan is finalized, your child’s occupational therapist will review the plan with you and set up the therapy sessions at one of our office locations. Parents are amazed at the transformation they see in their child's behavior and skills at school after starting Occupational Therapy. It is empowering for both the child and parent to experience.
