Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on assisting children to develop the skills they need to be as independent and functional in all of their daily occupations as possible.  Children’s occupations include activities such as play, school, and self-care tasks.  Our pediatric occupational therapist is patient and family-focused to determine the child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and overall child/family goals. Pediatric occupational therapists work with children of various diagnoses/disabilities or after an injury or accident to maximize their function and quality of life.

Comprehensive Rehab Programs for PEDs:

The Listening Program

The Listening Program involves listening to acoustically-modified instrumental music to assist with symptoms in the diagnosis of ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autism and Developmental Delays. TLP can benefit most anyone, and applications are wide ranging, from rehabilitation, to wellness and peak performance.

Sensory Integration Therapy

We are able to treat and comfort children with certain sensitivity to lights, sounds and textures. Our OT's helps each patient learn to respond to sensory input in an appropriate manner, allowing them to lead a better life.

Zones of Regulation® Behavior Approach

Zones of Regulation® is used by our Occupational Therapy staff to teach self-regulation by categorizing all the different ways we feel into four zones.  Using this program, we can teach students to become aware of, and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts. By addressing underlying deficits in emotional and sensory regulation, executive function, and social cognition, the curriculum is designed to help move students toward independent regulation.  The Zones of Regulation helps teach students to identify their feelings, understand how their behavior impacts those around them, and learn what tools they can use to manage their feelings.
