April is OT Month

Help us celebrate OT Month!

April Honors Occupational Therapists.  Here at Pediatric Therapy Partners, we have an amazing group of OTs that work to improve a child's physical development, social and emotional development, cognition, and sensory processing skills to assist the child to maximize their functional potential in all areas of daily living.

Our therapist have certifications or extensive training in many different areas including Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to feeding (SOS Program); Torticollis; Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT); Handwriting Without Tears; Beckman Massage for oral motor deficits and feeding issues; and assistive technology/adaptive equipment.

Are meal times frustrating? OTs can introduce feeding therapy to help identify specific concerns and improve feeding skills.

Is your child oversensitive to sound or often bumping into objects or other people? Do they have a hard time “keeping still”?  Sensory Integration therapy can address these areas and concerns and at PTP we have one of the regions only SIPT (Sensory Integration and Praxis Test) certified therapists.  Therapeutic Listening is another treatment tool we can use to address concerns in these areas.

If your child is struggling with day-to-day interactions and overall social skills, Social Group can be a great way to address some of these issues. Turn taking, self-awareness, communication, safety, following directions, boundaries, and expressions of wants and needs are some the things we address in this group.

The OTs at PTP play a vital role in the treatment of many different conditions and do so in many different ways.  If you would like more information on occupational therapy, please visit our website at www.pediatrictherapypartners.com.
