Occupational Therapy 

What is Occupational Therapy? 

Therapy that treats motor skills, emotions or behavior, and helping people fully engage in daily life. In addition our therapists work on sensory and primitive reflex integration.

Retained Reflexes

Retained primitive reflexes can lead to developmental delays related to disorders like ADHD, sensory processing disorder, autism, and learning disabilities. The persistence of primitive reflexes contribute to issues such as coordination, balance, sensory perceptions, fine motor skills, sleep, immunity, energy levels, impulse control, concentration and all levels of social, emotional, and academic learning.

How We Can Help Retained Reflexes

We assess skills with standardized and accepted testing and we quantify them by grade, age, or functional level. Our program then works to integrate sensory input and strengthen motor skills through the frequency and duration of activities that are designed to improve balance and stability and to increase muscle tone so a child can react more quickly.

Some of these exercises include:

  •   Vision exercises

  •   Vestibular activities

  •   Balance exercises

  •   Primitive reflex training

  •   Gait training

  •   And so much more!
