We focus on improving handwriting skills, visual motor skills, and organization skills for learning academic tasks. Fine motor skills are rehabilitated to improve functional daily living tasks such as buttoning and zipping clothes, hygiene/self-care routines, and maintaining proper nutrition through mealtime routines. Mealtime routines may be addressed with modified utensils, sensory applications, or oral motor strengthening programs. Sensory integration is implemented in therapy routines when required to enhance developmental impairments. Therapy activities are fun and engaging to the child to promote maximum progress.
