Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapy aims to help children and adolescents master the job of living. Children participate in a variety of occupations, which may include sleeping, dressing, eating, playing, and participating in home and school life. Therapists work with clients to help their motor development, sensory processing, and self-esteem to engage more appropriate in their everyday occupations.

Treatment techniques may include:

  • Sensory processing and motor planning development
  • Sensory desensitization, including therapeutic listening
  • Oral motor programming
  • Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) techniques
  • Self-regulation programming
  • Emotional development
  • Visual motor development
  • Midline development
  • Infant development and regulation
  • Constraint-induced movement programming
  • Splinting
  • Assistive technology
  • Reflex integration
