PEDIATRIC OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

The pediatric occupational therapists employed by Access Therapy Group are a group of highly trained professionals who utilize their specialized skills and knowledge to evaluate and treat children and adolescents with a variety of diagnoses. An occupational therapist utilizes activities that are both fun and therapeutic to help an individual achieve their fullest functional potential in their daily activities. For children, daily activities that an occupational therapist can assist with include but are not limited to:

What is Sensory Processing Disorder?

"Sensory Processing" refers to our ability to take in information through our senses (touch, movement, smell, taste, vision and hearing), organize and interpret that information, and make a meaningful response. For example, when we hear someone talking or an animal making noise, our brain allows us to process that information automatically and make appropriate responses. Children who have a Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), however, do not experience this process the same way. SPD affects the way their brains interpret the information they take in and also how they act on that information with emotion, attention, motor, and other responses. They may feel bombarded by information, which causes them to seek out sensory experiences.
