The majority of our children receiving occupational therapy services today have a diagnosis of Autism, ASD, and other developmental disabilities ranging from mild to severe. Our patients are often referred by pediatricians, teachers, other health professionals and family members.
Our occupational therapists have a vast range of experience in assessing a variety of skills both formally (standardized assessments) and informally (clinical observations) including, but not limited to, assessing visual motor integration, visual perceptual skills, fine motor skills, fine motor strength, gross motor skills, attention, sensory processing delays and environmental/information processing skills.
Our therapist’s goals are to assist the child receiving therapeutic services in achieving their specific goals, acquiring their fullest potential in achieving independence in life skills and emotional well being. With this in mind, occupational therapists regularly conduct re-evaluations to determine each child’s progress and update with current goals.
