Occupational Therapy

Hope everyday

CRCC’s Occupational Therapy Team specializes in working with children who have a wide range of diagnoses, medical complexities, cognitive challenges and developmental delays. As specialists in fine motor impairments, occupational therapists use meaningful activities to teach skills for life. They are also trained in neurological development and how the many sensory systems work together to allow for optimal function in daily tasks.

CRCC’s occupational therapists develop a treatment protocol and use a variety of techniques to guide children in becoming successful at play, with learning and when socializing with friends. Areas of evaluation, treatment and consultation include:

• Fine motor/handwriting skills
• Play and socialization
• Sensory integration
• Organizing and planning motor skills
• Oral motor functioning
• Self-help and hygiene
• Adaptive equipment modifications
• Environmental adaptations for home and school settings
• Feeding

• Dexterity and fine motor skills such as holding a utensil or toothbrush
• Following two- or three-step directions

• Sensory processing skills that inhibit ability to participate in daily activities, such as:

  - Sensitivity to noise
