A child’s “occupations” include playing, self care, and learning. Our occupational therapists can evaluate a child’s skills in activities of daily living (feeding, dressing, grooming), fine motor skills (including handwriting), concentration and memory skills, or sensory processing and compare them to what is developmentally appropriate for their age group.
Occupational therapy uses purposeful activities to minimize the effects of disease, injury, congenital deficit, disability, or developmental delay. At Littlefield Physical Therapy, therapy is designed to feel like play. Swinging, crawling through tunnels and crashing into soft foam mats are exciting ways for children to build their core strength and sensory reactions.
