Using a variety of formal and informal evaluation and assessment measures, our occupational therapists identify specific neurological processes and skills that are affecting a child???s ability to function within his/her daily routine. Through a variety of therapeutic approaches, engagement in activity is facilitated, and compensatory techniques or adaptations are utilized, to provide maximum growth and success throughout daily routines that have been identified as a priority for the child and family.
