Therapy sessions will target your child’s specific and individual needs as determined by their evaluation. At Positive Steps we are child oriented and believe in making therapy fun. Your child’s interest and preference are integral into the success of therapy.

Sessions vary between 45-60 minutes depending on your child’s needs. Your child’s goals shape the activities in a treatment session. Treatment time is spent in both the sensory gym and fine motor rooms providing a lot of activity choices and the opportunity to work on transitions.

Our therapists keep daily notes to monitor your child’s progress toward their goals. Treatment does not end in the clinic. We will provide home programs, “fun homework” and activities to ensure generalization of skills.

All of our treatments are customized to your child’s needs however there are several treatment programs used frequently by OT. There programs are organized and concrete making it easier to monitor progress and to utilize in different environments (school, home…).
