Helping Our Children Participate
What is Occupational Therapy (O.T.)?
Occupational Therapy uses everyday life activities (occupations) to enable the participation and performance of children who may be experiencing a developmental delay.
For children who are experiencing differences in their development, occupational therapists will address activities of daily life such as feeding, self-help skills, play, education, social development, fine motor development, & visual motor development.
What is Sensory Integration (SI)?
Sensory Integration (SI) is a specialty area of occupational therapy which focuses on how children receive, regulate, respond to their environment. SI can be further explained in which the way our brains organize sensory information and responds to sensory stimulation.
Dysregulation of a child’s sensory system may result in sensitivity or avoidance of certain foods, textures, or sounds making it difficult for some children to interact successfully with their environment.
