Pediatric Occupational Therapy


Many people may think occupational therapy is just for adults—however, children have an occupation too. Their occupation is playing and learning. Our job as pediatric occupational therapists at the Kinisi Institute is to work with children to develop age-appropriate skills in the areas of play, socialization, daily self-care routines, school and home activities.

Our occupational therapy team includes experts in child development and working with individual children and their families. Their goal is to help each unique child meet the physical, mental and behavioral developmental milestones appropriate for his or her age, as well as his or her injury or disability.

Our team works closely with you and other specialists to create a care plan that is customized for your child.

The many conditions our pediatric occupational therapy team can treat include:

  • Decreased ability to complete self-care, school and daily routines
  • Weakness, incoordination and hypersensitivity
  • Limitations in fine and gross motor skills
  • Sensory processing and self-regulation
  • Decreased attention and organization
  • Decreased or changes in vision
