Occupational Therapy

estside views occupational therapy as a service that helps children achieve independence in their daily life activities or “occupations”. Our occupational therapists help children gain the functional skills they need for independence in play, motor skills development, self-care, and socialization. Occupational therapy includes sensory integration techniques, muscle strengthening, work on bilateral coordination (using two hands together), motor planning, visual perception & motor skills, and direct practice often with adaptations of the fine motor and self-care tasks (cutting, writing, tying shoes).

“The experienced therapists and staff feel like an extension of our family.”
