Our Occupational Therapy program includes -Sensory Integration Therapy -
Sensory integration therapy aims to help kids with sensory processing issues by exposing them to sensory stimulation in a structured way .The occupational therapist assess children and then accordingly design and implement an individual program of sensory experiences for a child with autism spectrum disorder or sensory processing disorders. Sensory integration therapy is used to help children learn using all their senses together that is touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. This therapy uses physical activities and exercises to help children learn to interpret and use sensory information more effectively.
A sensory diet is a program of sensory activities that are specifically scheduled into a child’s day to assist attention, arousal and adaptive responses. Occupational therapist can design a routine of activities for your child to do that fits exact needs and schedule. The therapist also perform with child during therapy sessions and the child can also do that at home as OTist advices.
Gross motor skills are those which require whole body movement and which involve the large muscles of the body to perform everyday functions, such as standing, walking, running and jumping, or sitting upright at the table. They also include eye-hand coordination skills such as ball skills (throwing, catching and kicking) as well as riding a bicycle and swimming.
A child who is behind in movement, strength, and/or balance may appear clumsy or uncoordinated. Occupational therapists help in improving poor balance and coordination skills, improving posture, tone thereby improving overall participation in play tasks and games in school.
Fine motor skills refer to the coordination between small muscles, like those of the hands and fingers. Fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the body that enable such functions as writing, grasping small objects and fastening clothing. They involve strength, fine motor control, and dexterity.
Occupational therapists might help kids work on fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills. It also help kids with severe developmental delays learn basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves).
Play is a child’s occupation, play promotes child’s growth and development. A child uses play to build skills needed for every aspect of their development. When a child is limited in the underlying skills needed to play, not only does their functional ability to build with blocks, color, pretend, imagine, and create suffer, but all of the skills they potentially acquire may be limited as well. The focus of Occupational Therapists is meeting the needs of their children so that they can reach functional goals.
