Our dynamic Occupational Therapists focus on a child’s ability to play, perform in school, use their hands/bodies in a coordinated manner, interpret sensory information, and engage in perceptual/visual motor tasks.

WTS Occupational Therapists hold Master’s degrees, have advanced training certificates and/or have years of experience working with children. They utilize Sensory Integration, Interactive Metronome, Neurodevelopmental treatment, play, parent education, and behavioral interventions to make progress possible. Expertise in neurology, neuroanatomy, motor learning, hand functioning, perception, orthopedics and development guide them in maximizing a child’s performance in the following areas:

  • Fine Motor Deficits (hand functioning)
  • Visual Motor and Perceptual Motor deficits
  • Sensory Integration difficulties
  • Handwriting Remediation
  • Emotional Adjustment
  • Peer Relationships
  • Play Skills
  • School Related Tasks
  • Feeding / eating tolerance
  • Gross Motor Deficits (total body coordination)
  • Motor control
  • Self Care Skills
  • Attention to task
