Occupational therapists (OTs) help people perform optimally in their OCCUPATION. Think of a toddler or child. What is their occupation? Well, it includes eating, drinking, playing, socializing, dressing themselves, toileting… among many other things! Pediatric occupational therapy supports children in full participation and engagement with their daily activities across home, school, and in the community. A child’s most meaningful occupation is play. Play is therefore the basis of our therapy sessions. Through OT, we can target various areas such as fine motor coordination, self-care skills, picky eating, feeding difficulties, attention, ADD, ADHD, emotional regulation, handwriting, and sensory integration.
We are currently scheduling OT evaluations, parent consultations, and weekly treatment sessions. Contact us to today to learn more!
"Emily and Kalista have both been amazing to work with. My child looks forward to speech therapy every week and is picking up new words daily! I like this place because we are able to go the same time each week and they are super easy going. Kalista is great with my child and makes it fun! That is so important! We have been to other speech therapists in town and their therapy sessions were very “clinical” and not fun for my child. We found the right fit for us. We love Prickly Pear!"
"We could not be more pleased with the care we have received at Prickly Pear Pediatric Therapy and recommend it highly to all our friends. Their expertise, quality of care and remarkable support has made a huge difference in our child's life and for that we will forever be grateful."
