Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy services improve the skills of children and families so they can better participate in daily activities they need and want to engage in.

Parent/caregiver involvement is essential in pediatric therapy.  I partner with caregivers during therapy to facilitate interventions, ensure understanding, and for greater support of home-programs which are a part of treatment.  

Pediatric Pelvic Floor

  • Bowel and bladder issues impact many children - but you do not have to go-it alone! If your child is experiencing:

    • Chronic contipation

    • Refusal to use the toilet

    • Day time leakage

    • nighttime wetting

    • urgency to pee

    • difficulty or straining when pooping

    • other toileting/bathroom issues

Then Pelvic Floor Therapy may be right next step for your child!

Playing with Toys
Family Time

Picky Eating and Food Aversions 

  • Are meal times difficult for your child? Is your child refusing certain foods or having meltdowns around mealtimes? I can help you figure out what's going on and help you improve your child's routines, their oral motor skills, and their sensory tolerance. 

  • I am trained by the Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S) Approach to Feeding Program and use a child-led responsive technique to improve feeding skills

Developmental Life Skills

Some children don't begin to take an active role in self-care due to sensory, social, motor, or routines-based issues. 

 

I can help you get on track with understanding your child's developmental level and setting up routines to help them succeed with skills including:

  • Dressing

  • Socializing

  • Playing

  • Moving their body

  • Hygiene (tooth brushing, hair brushing)

Getting Dressed
