Occupational Therapy

In the clinical setting, the Occupational Therapist evaluates and treats performance and independence in the areas of hand skills (fine motor), self-care, visual motor, visual perception and graphomotor skills (handwriting). Occupational Therapists also address feeding skills, sensory integration, motor development, environmental exploration, play skills, adaptive behavior, and interactions between a child and others (including caregivers and peers). Treatment is designed to address the cause of the weaknesses and improve function in those areas. Our Occupational Therapists are extremely skilled and have experience in the areas of traditional OT, orthopedic, neurological, oral-motor, and sensory processing problems.

At Excel, both Occupational and Physical Therapist are SIPT certified, and have the ability to aggressively treat the child with sensory processing issues.
