Occupational therapists work from the inside out to address the difficulties children may face. Learning about emotions and being able to understand how they change in different situations is a valuable skill for kids. OT helps develop self-awareness and social skills (among many others) that help the body and mind work together!

Some children have difficulties organizing the sounds we make when talking. “Gliding” is a common speech pattern that typically disappears by age 5. This is when “l” and “r” sounds are substituted for “w” and “y” sounds. Speech therapy helps correct this phonological process, and much more!

Feed the frog! Just one of the many games we utilize during Occupational Therapy to work on things like bilateral coordination (using both sides of the body together). Children who appear clumsy, drop things often or primarily use one hand in activities may need help with their bilateral coordination. Questions? Allow our team of professionals to guide you to the next step: https://childsplayplus.com/contact/

Playing with shaving cream is a great activity to try at home, too! When using two hands we engage both sides of our brain and work on core muscles, shoulders and arm strength.
Make time to read together!

A persons occupation is anything that they do in a day, everything from sleep to making food and being able to eat it.
One of a child’s occupations is play! Here at Child’s Play Plus our Occupational Therapy providers take a play-based approach with patients! Kids feel like they’re just having fun while we work on their goals.
“Kids are always happy to see me because they get to create obstacle courses and crafts, engage in imaginative play, and try various sensory activities! We get to have fun together while we are meeting goals!” – Monica Phillips, M.S., OTRL | Occupational Therapist at Child’s Play Plus

Being able to feed yourself is a life skill that everyone should master. Our ABA kiddos get to work on that everyday in our kitchens. Step-by-step they learn how to prepare their own lunch… and boy does it smell good!
