Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on helping individuals do the things that they want to do and need to do. A child’s “occupations,” or daily activities include daily skills (eating, dressing, etc), playing, learning and socializing.

Sensory Integration

Sensory Integration is the brain’s ability to understand, process and effectively respond to all the sensory input around us. This is not an easy and natural task for everyone. Occupational therapists focus on a child’s ability to integrate sensory information.

Sensory or Behavior

Occupational Therapists take a behavioral approach, however they take it a step further by adding in the sensory component. By analyzing the child further, the occupational therapist may identify that the child is demonstrating frequent sensory seeking behavior that involves heavy input.

Behavior specialists tackle the behaviors of a child with a purely behavioral focus. Occupational therapy addresses the behavior with a combination of behavioral approaches and sensory strategies.
