Occupational Therapy

Child Inspired is very excited to have the opportunity to provide therapeutic services for your child, family or organization. Maybe you find yourself in the “sandwich generation”, caring for the needs of young children and aging parents with medical needs? Occupational Therapists work with individuals across the lifespan to enhance and restore function through the use of meaningful activities. The word “Occupation” is not used to refer specifically to a job or profession, but rather the daily activities that bring purpose, meaning and quality to our daily lives.

The “Occupation” of infants and young children revolves around feeding, sleeping, play, and developing safe, trusting bonds with caregivers. Healthy childhood development is dependent upon successful physical and emotional skill development in these areas. Occupational Therapists work closely with families, and other professionals to address any concerns in these performance areas, as all babies need proper nutritional intake, sleep, and sensory input (comforting touch, movement, clean skin/diapers) for healthy growth.

As children enter the school-age years, their “Occupations” broaden to include school function, and enhanced opportunities for peer connections and relationships through play, sports, and leisure activities. Successful physical, cognitive and social-emotional skill development helps children reach their greatest potential as learners, now and leading into their future endeavors. Occupational Therapists work closely with educators and families to improve motor coordination, visual perception, sensory integration, self-regulation, and self-care skills required for success in daily home and school routines.

Adolescents and young adults prepare to enter the workforce to reach greater independence and sustainability. Individuals with physical, cognitive, or developmental disabilities may require specialized training, adaptations, and/or environmental modifications for successful job acquisition and life skill development.

Adults may develop a medical or psychological condition that causes a decline in function or a change in their level of independence. Occupational Therapists work in a hospital, rehabilitation, psychiatric, home healthcare, and community settings to help restore function and independence.
