The early years of a child’s life are crucial as cognitive, social and physical development takes place then. But, not every child successfully passes through these developmental milestones. There are some who have restricted or delayed development.
Occupational therapy helps children to maximise their potential through intervention in the areas of gross and fine motor functions, sensory processing, eye hand coordination, visual perception, activities of daily living, attention span, concentration, self regulation & organisation, play and social skills.
The ultimate goal of this therapy is to achieve functional independence. Therapy is provided using evidence-based practises in combination with various techniques like Neurodevelopment therapy (NDT), Sensory Integration (SI), Hand writing without tears (HWT), Constraint induced therapy (CIT), Brain Gym & Play Therapy.
