We are providing different programs for children and their family according to their situation.
Programs we Offer
Your child might see an occupational therapist if they have difficulty doing everyday things because of physical disability, learning difficulties, psychological or emotional challenges, developmental delay or intellectual disability. Pediatric occupational therapy is very beneficial for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and developmental delays of varying degrees in all domains of development.
Here are just a few signs that your child might benefit from pediatric occupational therapy.
Difficulty achieving age-appropriate developmental milestones.
Occupational therapy can help children who show signs of developmental delays. For example, if your 1-year-old isn’t crawling yet or if your 2-year-old can’t walk steadily.
Issues with fine motor skills.
Some children struggle with tasks that require strength, control, and dexterity of the small hand muscles. Kids who have trouble with fine motor skills will have a difficult time with tasks like using scissors, drawing, stringing beads, and using utensils. If fine motor skill issues aren’t addressed, a child with delays in this area could have a hard time performing essential activities like writing and using computers at school.
Sensory processing problems.
Children with sensory processing disorders can benefit from pediatric occupational therapy. If your child seems to overreact to touch, taste, sounds, or smells, that’s a common sign that he or she could have sensory processing issues and might need occupational therapy. Kids with sensory processing problems might also display under-sensitivity and keep seeking out sensations by moving around and touching everything constantly, according to the Our Therapists.

Our Approach To Discipline
Our approach to discipline is very natural. we carry it through the clinic so it we’re very behaviourally based which means that we believe that there’s always a stimulus and a response.we might not know what the stimulus is but we can always see the response. I had a child therapist head so you know that was a response, we don’t know what the stimulus was. The first thing we ask and we try to analyze is that what caused it? Was it the transition ? Or the activities? Was there something hurting the child? Is the child sick ?After knowing this what do we do to mitigate that, first of all we set an expectation. and then we redirect so our expectations and how we set expectations.For example, expectation hands on your knees so you’re not going to pick up the truck and roll because your hands are going to be on your knees. we don’t say that we just say hands on your knees! then if a child needs help then we’ll know. let me help you maybe they’re dysregulated and if they are still upset then you take their hands put him on their knees. Tell them great job!
