How do you know if a child needs occupational therapy?
Children that need an occupational therapy assessment or intervention often present signs to both their parents and teachers. Children with these difficulties are often inattentive, disorganized, easily frustrated, have poor handwriting and/or cutting skills, or take a long time to do their work.
Problems at home include: difficulty dressing (age appropriate), losing personal items, forgetting chores, being overly sensitive, having difficulty with personal space or frequent outbursts.
Block Building Therapies uses detailed assessment and therapy interventions for children from toddler to teen. Our interactive therapeutic learning experiences encompass both psychological and physiological development issues.
We improve school and life skills by assessing and treating visual motor, coordination, visual processing and organizational skills.
Our therapists specialize in handwriting and sensory motor skills. Interventions can be in the form of individual or group therapy (as in Handwriting Without Tears and How Does Your Engine Run – The Alert Program). We also provide full or half day workshops on Sensory Integration, Handwriting and Fine Motor Dysfunction.
