Occupational Therapy

occupational therapy

Our experienced pediatric occupational therapists are trained to promote successful acquisition of self-help, play, and learning skills for infants and children. They specialize in facilitating success in activities that are crucial to childhood, as a foundation for lifelong success and independence, including: daily living tasks, play activities, sensory-motor skills, visual-motor and visual perceptual tasks, and fine motor activities.

Occupational therapy at High Hopes stresses the importance of sensory integration and the development of fine motor and perceptual skills as prerequisites for academic learning and pre-vocational skills. We work closely with families, teachers, and other professionals to address the needs of each child and family.

Specialized treatment is offered in the following areas:
