Pediatric Occupational Therapy at Salem Outpatient for Children
Pediatric occupational therapy helps to facilitate a child’s ability to learn and maintain skills in all areas of development. Together, we work on developing your child’s cognitive skills, motor skills, social skills, and self-care skills such as bathing and feeding. With pediatric occupational therapy, we will help your child progress mentally and physically, helping to grow their confidence and independence
Our team of pediatric occupational therapists evaluate, diagnose and treat physical and functional impairments in children of all ages. Our interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating each child/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities.
We work with you, your child, your family and other team members to create a rehabilitation program specific to your needs and goals.
