Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy in Gresham, OR
Occupational Therapists help children improve their ability to perform everyday tasks.

They evaluate and treat individuals from infancy through adolescence. Therapy consists of the acquisition of developmental milestones through gross & fine motor play, development of self-care abilities, social skills, handwriting, oral motor, behavior, sensory integrative development and more.

Our OT's also specialize in treating children with mild to severe Sensory Integration Disorders. Children with diagnosis such as ADD, ADHD, FAS, Autism or children labeled as having behavior or attention problems often have underlying sensory processing problems. We offer direct, ongoing, one-on-one therapy in order to help children and their parents make sense out of what may seem to them an overwhelming and chaotic world. As they gain the skills to integrate their sensory systems and process the world around them, they begin to have energy left over to concentrate on school work. They learn to identify and self regulate their activity level, can better control their behavior in a busy classroom, and the many transitions associated with a normal school day often become easier for them to handle.
