Our Early Interventionists work with credentialed professionals whose backgrounds include child development, nursing, social work, and special education. These experts are qualified to assess six domains of your child’s development: gross motor coordination, fine motor coordination, social skills, language skills, cognitive skills, and self-help strategies. Early interventionists also provide invaluable parent and caregiver education, as well as specific intervention that targets your child’s special needs.
Our OT’s conduct assessments and provide direct treatment and consultative therapy in the areas of fine motor coordination, sensory integration, activities of daily living, self regulation, cognition, and feeding. We also provide parent and caregiver training. Maintaining effective communication between your family, our team, and other healthcare providers participating in your child’s care remains our highest goal.
