Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children and young persons/adults with learning disabilities and /or autism. They undertake assessment and help develop and maintain skills in the following areas:

  • Fine Motor Skills: This area involves coordination of muscles involved in undertaking synchronization of hands and fingers as well as development of eye-hand coordination, examples include building a block tower, tying laces, pencil grasp and writing

  • Gross Motor Skills: This area involves development and coordination of muscles required to undertake activities such as walking, running, jumping, cycling, crawling, hopping, going up and down the stairs.

  • Vestibular Processing Skills: The vestibular system is the basis for developing our all sensory systems is key to enable us to control, move and orient our own body in relation to other objects and things around us. Vestibular system is key for our posture and spatial awareness and orientation.

  • Sensory Diet Integration Skills: Sensory Diet is not related to food. It is a carefully developed plan of physical activities and accommodations according to the individual child's needs to give each child the sensory input she needs. Sensory diets can be used as part of sensory integration therapy. Completing a sensory diet routine can help kids optimize their functioning skills, which can help them pay attention in school, learn new skills and socialize with other kids.
