Our occupational therapists will use cutting-edge strategies to tailor each session to each client’s specific need. Occupational therapy focuses on improving fine and gross motor skills and motor planning. It can also help individuals who struggle with self-regulation, sensory processing, picky eating, and overall functional life skills. Occupational therapy focuses on motor, cognitive, sensory processing, communication, and play skills.
The concept of "occupation" usually brings to mind the adult workforce; however, it also holds significance in the context of childhood development. In this regard, occupational therapy at Believe Therapies aims to assist children in acquiring the essential skills needed for future success, encompassing motor and social abilities.
If a child faces challenges in developing these skills independently, our team of occupational therapists at Believe Therapies is ready to guide them through the process. Through careful evaluation, we determine areas that require improvement and devise appropriate strategies to aid the child. Some common ways we support children include:
Teaching proper grip of writing instruments or toys.
Proposing environmental adjustments, like reducing stimuli for better focus.
Instructing basic hygiene skills, such as handwashing and teeth brushing.
Enhancing coordination abilities.
By honing these skills at an early age, your child gains self-assurance and independence, allowing them to keep up with peers and participate fully in various activities.
Areas We Address:
Our occupational therapy services at Believe Therapies cover various areas, including:
Fine Motor Skills: These are small movement skills involving hands, fingers, and wrists, crucial for tasks like writing, cutting, eating, and dressing. Proper development in this area contributes to a child's overall learning experiences and self-esteem.
Sensory Integration Skills: Sensory integration is the process of organizing sensory information to function effectively in the world. It involves touch, taste, smell, movement, hearing, and body awareness. Developing these skills impacts a child's behavior, social interaction, and play abilities.
Identifying a Need for Occupational Therapy:
Every child progresses uniquely, but there are common developmental milestones. If your child is not reaching the suggested milestones for their age, it may be beneficial to seek assistance from our occupational therapists at Believe Therapies. Early intervention can be highly effective in addressing challenges and reducing stress for both you and your child.
