Occupational Therapy facilitates the maximum level of independence through the assessment of fine motor skills, cognitive skills, visual skills, and the individual’s ability to perform activities of daily living. Therapy is individualized, based on a child's evaluation, and may focus on the relaxation of muscle tone (through modalities such as heat, massage, paraffin, baths, vibration, etc,); increasing upper extremity range of motion; improving gross/fine motor coordination; increasing perceptual/cognitive and academic skills; an increasing independent living skills through the use of adaptive equipment or re-education. The Occupational Therapists also perform assessments and develop appropriate home programs for sensory dysfunction.
