Understanding the Benefits of Pediatric Occupational Therapy

According to popular research, occupational therapy is helpful not only in developing necessary life skills but also in reducing the risk of hospital admission (and readmission in some cases). At Speech Source Therapy, Inc. we pride ourselves on providing families with an occupational therapy program that is personalized to meet the unique needs of your child.

Personalized Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Typical issues addressed in pediatric occupational therapy that can be personalized include:

  • Cognitive skills – remembering letters, shapes and sequences
  • Fine motor skills – finger dexterity, wrist and forearm control, and hand strength
  • Gross motor skills – balance and body coordination
  • Self-care tasks – dressing, bathing and self-feeding
  • Social skills – taking turns, listening and following directions

In addition to one-on-one training with a Speech Source therapist and your child, we also offer training to families and caregivers on ways to assist with maintaining range of motion exercises and other self-care tasks. Our goal is to help train your child in both the physical aspect of self-care and in the psychological aspects (stress management and coping skills).

The first step in beginning your child’s pediatric occupational therapy journey is allowing us to evaluate their sensorimotor, cognitive, and adaptive skills. Once this has been done, we can develop a strategy that includes milestones.

Speech Source Therapy Inc. facility includes therapy and sensory integration gym with the necessary equipment to ensure the needs and best quality of care for our patients. If you are interested in working with a professional team with whom you can grow, please contact us at SFV: (818) 788-4121 or LA: (213) 493-6698.
