Occupational Therapy

  • BrightStart Pediatrics - Occupational Therapy at work

  • Occupational Therapy helps infants and children  succeed in meeting the daily occupations of childhood – play, school and self-help activities.

    For children with difficulties in movement, coordination and cognitive functions, Occupational Therapy promotes learning and independent play by exploring their environment through the use of their hands and other senses.

    Age appropriate, sensory-rich play encourages success in:

    • Fine motor coordination
    • Cognitive development
    • Upper body strengthening
    • Positioning
    • Self Help tasks:  feeding, grooming, dressing
    • Sensory Processing Skills
