Occupational Therapy from Neuro Therapeutic Pediatric Therapies, Inc.

Pediatric occupational therapy is a skilled therapeutic treatment, which focuses on helping infants, children, and young adults maximize their abilities to achieve the greatest possible degree of functional independence in all areas, or “occupations”, of their lives.

Occupational Therapy uses purposeful and goal-directed activities in conjunction with play to improve function, enhance mastery of skills, foster positive self-esteem/confidence and promote engagement, interactions, and involvement.

  • By utilizing a variety of evidence-based theories and treatment techniques, our therapists address the unique and individual concerns of each child and their family.
  • Our occupational therapists are highly trained to assess and provide treatment to children from birth to young adults. We understand that all children are unique and not everyone fits into a specific therapy model, so by individualizing treatments we are able to provide the most effective intervention for each patient.
