Occupational Therapy

An Occupational Therapist assists children with developing fine motor skills, like reaching and grasping, as well as upper body strength. An OT will also address self help skills, like using utensils and dressing. They work with the small muscles of the mouth to develop the oral motor skills needed for eating. Our OTs use The Eat Right Plan, developed by TEIS, to help children with feeding problems. OTs can also help families to address sensory processing concerns, using The Good Sense Plan, also developed by TEIS.
