Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Pediatric Occupational Therapy services at TYGR are designed to treat physical and psychological impairments from neurological, muscular, and/or psychosocial disorders or disabilities. Therapists work with children through purposeful activities to improve and develop skills needed for everyday independence and quality of life. Both children with and without disabilities can use therapy to gain confidence and build skills needed for demands of their school work, self care and life skill tasks as well as leisure and recreational pursuits. Occupational Therapy is beneficial when there are concerns regarding fine motor, sensory, visual motor, and/or motor planning. TYGR Occupational Therapists use gymnastic activities and equipment to enhance the child’s fine motor skills, sensory experiences, motor planning, visual system, upper body strength, regulation, processing and cognition while building self-confidence, life skills, and social skills.
