Does My Child Need Occupational Therapy?
Is your child having trouble performing basic tasks at home, at school, or in the community? Do they have difficulties that aren’t encountered by most typical children? If that’s the case, an occupational therapist may be able to assist.
Occupational therapy helps children gain independence while strengthening the fine motor skills, sensory-motor skills, and visual-motor skills they need to function and socialize on a daily basis.
What Challenges Does Your Child Experience?
Occupational therapists work with kids who have disabilities or developmental delays. They use play-based activities to help improve their quality of life. The goal is for kids to do more things independently without the assistance of parents or teachers.

My son loves coming to therapy here! Everyone he has worked with he likes. They have worked with him on many different things, and he loves to play with them. That’s how great they are he thinks he’s coming to “play”. They make OT and Speech FUN! The office staff is amazing. My phone got locked in the lobby and someone met me here to give it back. Way above what they needed to do. Great customer service here. All around a great place! We love our Crawl Walk family.
