How PlaySense Can Help

Occupational therapists help individuals get back to the activities that make up their everyday lives after an injury or a disability. For children, everyday activity means playing, growing up, learning, developing, and building independence. When a child is not participating to their potential, it is helpful to have an occupational therapy evaluation to determine possible road blocks and develop a therapeutic plan. Below are a few areas that will be addressed during and OT evaluation and in treatment.


Through individual or group occupational therapy sessions, we can help your child build and improve:

  Sensory integration: How one perceives and integrates various sensations for successful life participation. Difficulties in sensory integration may impact body awareness, the idea, planning and execution of motor actions (praxis), handwriting, visual, fine and gross motor development and many developmental areas required for growth and successful participation in the activities of everyday life.
