Occupational Therapy focuses on fine motor skills, visual-perceptual skills, cognitive skills, and sensory-processing deficits. Cole Pediatric Therapy has a team of Occupational Therapists that work with children impaired by illness, injury or disability that may impact their daily lives. Our Occupational Therapy programs include:
Sensory Processing Dysfunction
Our experienced occupational therapists focus on sensory deficits related to ADD/ADHD, feeding aversions and general sensory processing disorders.
Fine Motor Skills
Our occupational therapists focus on learning how to develop a child’s fine motor skills to help them engage in basic life tasks, such as buttoning buttons, tying shoes, handwriting skills, or cutting with scissors
Activities of Daily Living
Our occupational therapists help children with overall safety/self-care, handwriting difficulties, play skills and learning basic tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, tying shoes, and feeding themselves.
Evaluation for Specialized/Adaptive Equipment
Our occupational therapists evaluate the needs of your child for specialized equipment, such as wheelchairs, splints, bathroom equipment, etc. We will often work directly with medical equipment companies to ensure the children we treat have the best possible equipment for life outside the therapy session.
Visual Motor Development
Our occupational therapists help to improve visual motor integration, visual processing, visual memory, and visual perceptual abilities. These abilities are needed for day-to-day activities such as handwriting and play activities.
