skills We address in Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists (OTs) help children and adolescents develop the skills necessary for independent functioning and success in the classroom. Frustration at a foundational level can lead to problems with self-esteem and peer-relationships. It’s often difficult to understand where these problem areas lie because many times it’s a unique mix of several underlying difficulties that have gone unnoticed over the years.

Our team of experts will make a comprehensive assessment of a child’s abilities and charter a path for them to reach the next level.

IS YOUR CHILD FRUSTRATED AT SCHOOL?

Our specialists help children and adolescents develop the skills necessary for independent functioning and success in the classroom. Frustration at a foundational level can lead to problems with self-esteem and peer-relationships. Oftentimes, difficulties stem from a unique blend of areas making it challenging to pinpoint where to begin. Our OTs can help determine where to start by identifying a child’s strengths and weakness.

Understanding Functional Skills

Functional skills help children and adolescents develop independence in life. We engage your child in activities that develop important:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Sensory processing skills
  • Visual motor skills
  • Behavioral skills
  • Thinking skills
  • And more!

Development in these areas improves performance in valued daily activities, including dressing, feeding, writing, play, and social participation.

Occupational Therapy FAQ's

At My Kids Place, we focus on enabling a child to succeed in their home and academic lives at any age. We help children gain independence in their daily skills in order to thrive in their environment.

Occupational therapy engages people across the lifespan in activities of daily living (such as self-care skills, education, work, or social interaction) to enable, increase, or encourage participation in activities that are meaningful to that person.

Licensed occupational therapists utilize hands-on or guided interventions to help your child accomplish daily tasks like dressing, writing, and engaging in play. Your child will be an active participant in occupational therapy sessions.

Pediatric OTs provide services to children of all ages and skill levels. Goals focus on socialization, academic success, and independence with life’s necessary tasks.

Children with difficulties in school, social interactions, day-to-day skills, or regulating their emotions may benefit from occupational therapy. Our specialists can help determine if your child would benefit from OT to address any challenges they face.
