Growth And Development
Pediatric Occupational Therapy facilitates the growth and development of infants and children who are experiencing developmental delays, or difficulties performing various day-to-day activities. Occupational therapists address a wide variety of conditions including delays in visual motor, fine motor and sensory processing skills. By applying proper therapeutic techniques, improvements can be seen in areas such as learning, play, feeding, grooming, school readiness, self regulation and dressing.
