Problems We Help With

Occupational therapists are equipped to assist children with a wide spectrum of challenges, offering assessments and interventions in various settings such as homes, schools, or clinics. We cater to children of diverse ages, conditions, and cultural backgrounds. 

Occupational therapy utilises a child-centered approach in assessing and treating functional skills and everyday activities. A child’s most important “occupation” is play, therefore therapy incorporates meaningful tasks in order to promote a child’s development, independence and well-being.

Some prevalent challenges we address include:

  • Developmental delays

  • Increase independence with self-care skills such as dressing and self-feeding

  • Practice social interactions through peer play

  • Handwriting difficulties

  • Attention and concentration issues

  • Fine motor skill deficits

  • Visual perception challenges

  • Gross motor skill impairments / Improve upper extremity muscle strength, endurance, and motor planning skills

  • Sensory regulation difficulties   

  • Low self-confidence and social struggles

  • Assist with skills needed for school readiness, including pre-writing and handwriting

  • Collaborate with other service providers including teachers, physical therapists, and speech therapists to promote carryover of skills in all domains

  • Provide families with home education programs and resources to help in home and school

This list is not exhaustive, as occupational therapists are trained to tackle numerous other issues that children may encounter. It is common for children to be misinterpreted as simply falling behind in class or being labeled as class disruptors, whereas underlying difficulties might be the root cause. If you have concerns about any aspect of your child's development, functionality, or abilities, please feel free to reach out to us via email info@protherapykids.com
