What is Occupational Therapy?
You might associate occupation with work, but occupation is anything that keeps you busy during the day. Occupational therapy helps you develop the skills you need to live an active and fulfilling life. Occupational therapy focuses on a child’s fine motor skills, self-help skills, and sensory development. At Stepping Stone Kids Therapy our therapists are trained to evaluate each child, and develop a treatment plan to help the child reach their goals.
Assessment will be conducted to determine the necessity of occupational therapy services. Through the use of clinical observation, parent interview (for social, medical and developmental milestone history), standardized and non-standardized tests, our therapists assess the client’s fine and gross motor skills, range of motion, muscle strength, self-care skills, coordination, cognition, perceptual skills, and sensory processing.
