River Occupational Therapists are trained to look at the whole child - including psychological, physical, emotional, social, and sensory abilities. We are here to help achieve their goals, function at their highest level, maintain and/or rebuild their independence, and participate in everyday activities that bring meaning to their lives.
Daily activities for children 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
- Vision therapy
- Community integration
- Pre-Vocational skills
- Sensory integration therapy
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 “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.
