Occupational therapy focuses on a child’s fine motor skills, self help skills, and sensory development. At Therapy Squad our therapists are trained to evaluate each child, and develop a treatment plan to help the child reach their goals.

Occupational therapy utilizes a child-centered approach in assessing and treating functional skills and everyday activities. A child’s most important “occupation” is play, therefore therapy incorporates meaningful tasks in order to promote a child’s development, independence and well-being.

Occupational therapists:

  • Assess and treat sensory processing difficulties

  • Increase independence with self-care skills such as dressing and self-feeding

  • Practice social interactions through peer play

  • Improve upper extremity muscle strength, endurance, and motor planning skills

  • Assist with skills needed for school readiness, including pre-writing and handwriting

  • Collaborate with other service providers including teachers, physical therapists, and speech therapists to promote carryover of skills in all domains

  • Provide families with home education programs and resources to help in home and school
