Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupations are the everyday activities that make up your child’s life. From sleeping and resting to playing, learning, interacting with friends and completing self-care tasks throughout the day, your child is constantly practicing new occupations that help them function and interact with the world.

Typically, we don’t think about our children’s daily occupations until we see them struggle. Pediatric occupational therapy from Orlando Children’s Therapy is an effective tool for helping your child improve their ability to perform everyday tasks they may struggle with and develop critical physical, cognitive and social skills.

Who Benefits From Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy focuses on promoting participation and developing fundamental skills to help your child operate more successfully in everyday activities. At Orlando Children’s Therapy, our expert occupational therapists focus on helping your child achieve their goals and gain age-appropriate occupational skills.

Children enrolled at our kid’s occupational therapy clinic in Orlando are often diagnosed with conditions that result in mental, physical, developmental or emotional delays, including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder.
  • Cerebral Palsy.
  • Down Syndrome.
  • Sensory processing disorders.
  • Injuries and physical disabilities.
  • And many more!

Our occupational therapists work one-on-one with your child to evaluate their needs and understand what they would like to achieve through treatment. They develop a personalized plan for each child in our care, tailoring their treatment to address their unique needs and age-specific occupational skills. At Orlando Children’s Therapy, we work with children from birth to 21 years of age.

Our occupational therapy specialists begin every child’s treatment with a thorough evaluation of their existing skills, goals and any specific conditions that may be affecting their abilities to complete everyday occupations. This information allows your child’s therapist to work with you to create a custom treatment plan backed by scientific evidence and expertise.

Occupational therapy treatments typically consist of supporting your child in different activities, giving them physical exercises to help increase strength and dexterity and helping them to develop healthy habits and life skills.

Advantages of Occupational Therapy for Kids

The primary benefit of occupational therapy is giving your child the support needed to develop essential skills, achieve goals and more easily complete everyday tasks. We’ll help your child work to overcome specific challenges or focus on more general improvements in basic motor functions, reasoning abilities, self-help skills or compensation for permanent losses of function.

We make our occupational therapy treatments as easy as possible for you by offering occupational therapy for kids at home or your child’s school or daycare in Orlando.
