Occupational Therapy facilitates social skills and sensory-motor development through the use of self-care, work and play activities to promote function and independence in children.

Some of the children we work with have specific diagnoses such as:

  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Learning Disability
  • Developmental Delay
  • Sensory Integration Dysfunction

However, some children that we treat do not have a diagnosis.  They may have low muscle tone, fine motor delays, difficulties with handwriting, sensory processing and motor coordination delays.

If your child is displaying Occupational Therapy related difficulties, but you are not sure if a evaluation is warranted, we recommend a screening.  This may include a phone conversation or an observation period.  Positive Steps therapists are available to consult with teachers, parents, caregivers, and other therapists regarding Occupational Therapy related questions or concerns.
