Occupational Therapy
The Occupational Therapy Department provides evaluations and therapies to help children gain independence and promotes the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, visual motor skills, self-help skills and oral motor skills that children need to function and socialize in their home, school, play and community environments. In the case of an injury or debilitating illness, Occupational Therapy will focus on rehabilitating children, allowing them to return to their daily routines at their highest level of function.
