Occupational Therapy (OT)

Occupational Therapy (OT)

CARE recognizes the importance of multidisciplinary services for individuals with developmental, sensory, & cognitive disabilities and therefore, supports and promotes acquisition of independence within "occupations," or daily activities.  Some of these occupations include focus on academics, play and leisure, social participation, self-care skills and transition/work skills. Occupational therapy’s expertise includes activity and environmental analysis and modification with a goal of reducing the barriers to participation by offering prevention, promotion, and interventions.

We provide services for children and adolescents with a variety of diagnoses, including Autism, ADD/ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Down’s Syndrome, as well as many other developmental delays.

Occupational Therapist tailors around an individual’s specific needs and levels of ability.  OT utilizes creative, evidence-based intervention approaches to develop client centered treatment plans to help children, teens, and young adults increase their independence and participation in daily activities:

  • Self-Care
  • Delay Gratification
  • Sensory Processing
  • Gross Motor Skills
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Balance & Coordination
