Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy focuses on the “occupations” or “jobs” of childhood such as play, socialization, self-care and school performance. At Kinetic Kids, our occupational therapists help children develop the skills needed for functional independence in these important developmental areas.

Occupational therapy is aimed at the unique needs of each individual child and is provided through meaningful activity, so as to keep the child motivated and invested in the therapeutic process. While pediatric therapy is designed to feel like play to the child, our expertly trained occupational therapists draw from strategies in many specialty areas to build upon your child’s progress.

Occupational therapy focuses on the progression of developmental skills, the use of compensation techniques and/or adaptive equipment as needed, and adapting to the environment. The goal for your child is to promote the greatest level of independence and success during work or play.

We place great importance on working closely with parents and other caregivers for carryover into the home. Our occupational therapists focus on the following areas and conditions:

Sensory processing
