Occupational therapy is one of the most effective ways to help people achieve essential life skills for school, play, and life. At Speech-Language and Hearing Associates of Greater Boston, PC, we specialize in pediatric occupational therapy treatments for the benefit of children and their families. Through regular treatment, our team is able to stimulate, enhance and improve fine motor skills, oral motor skills, sensory, and perceptual skills from a young age and thus prevent issues in the future.
Pediatric Occupational Therapy
We treat children from pre-school through adolescence, and we offer a comprehensive evaluation designed to test for learning, cognitive, motor functionality, sensory processing, handwriting skills, and visual-perceptual skills.
Our evaluations allow us to determine what is developmentally appropriate for children, and we speak to the parents about their child’s unique needs. Often times, it is the parents who feel these tests are completely warranted. They feel concerned, and we help to assuage that concern through observational data, standardized tests, and effective therapy.
Occupational Therapy Treatment Plans
Once the evaluation is complete, our staff will meet with you to discuss moving forward with treatment. These sessions are designed to be fun for your child and offer a variety of activities that can be incorporated into the home environment, as well. At Speech-Language and Hearing Associates of Greater Boston, PC, we feel that the family unit and therapists are a team. Our experts will provide you with the help you need to further stimulate growth and development in your child.
Occupational therapy is provided to all patients, regardless of age. Many geriatric patients, for example, receive great benefits from occupational therapy, especially in conjunction with other speech therapy services.
