We assist children with cognitive, sensory, and physical disabilities throughout Montgomery County. Our occupational therapists develop personalized treatment plans to meet the unique needs of every child, helping them overcome challenges and grow into their own individual.
We welcome you and your family to join our clinic, where your child will connect with staff members, other patients, and begin their journey.
Understanding Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy helps children develop the everyday skills they need to grow into healthy, independent individuals. It allows children to participate in school, develop relationships and strong interpersonal skills, and achieve short-term and long-term goals.
Occupational therapy promotes socialization, self-care, independence, and personal-development in children and adolescents who have:
- Genetic disorders
- Learning disabilities
- Developmental delay
- Birth injuries/defects
- Multiple sclerosis
- Spina bifida
- Mental health & behavioral problems
Occupational therapy can also help children with cancer, juvenile arthritis, or those recovering from orthopedic injuries, stroke, burns, or traumatic injuries.
Evaluations for Occupational Therapy
We offer screenings that assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses so we can develop an optimized treatment plan. Early screenings can also help identify potential problems and challenges in some children.
An evaluation can better determine a child’s needs and areas where occupational therapy can benefit them. We will also perform an Assessment of Motor and Process Skills to get an understanding of your child’s ability to perform daily tasks, such as feeding or dressing.
During an evaluation, we’ll assess your child in the following areas:
- Fine motor & handwriting skills
- Gross motor & balance/coordination skills
- Visual motor skills
- Sensory integration
- Motor planning skills
- Oral motor skills
- Self-help skills (feeding & dressing)
- Vision & perception

- Handwriting & fine motor skills
