Occupational Therapy (OT)

Occupational Therapy (OT) for children helps develop physical and adaptive skills that will help the child improve interactions and functional skills in the physical and social world. The functional skills that OT focuses on developing are related to sensory-motor integration, which allows the child to accurately interpret and organize information.

  •   The use of hands and fingers

  • Co-ordination of movement

  • Self-help skills such as dressing, eating with a fork and spoon and tying shoe laces

  • Fine and gross motor skills; positioning for school work, and handwriting.

At FOCUS our Occupational Therapists work on Fine Motor Development, Gross Motor Development and Sensory Integration. We have three sensory gyms full of state of the art equipment that allow for our therapists to work on all different aspects while maintaining a fun and playful environment for the children. We also offer school services and can provide private OT at the school.
