Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration

Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration

CDI Occupational Therapists work with your family in a warm and collaborative manner to build on your child’s strengths through play and exploration to improve sensory and motor development.

What Is Occupational Therapy?

Pediatric Occupational Therapy helps young children gain independence in moving their bodies and processing the sensations of the world in an organized manner.  Building and coordinating motor skills and sensory processing improves a child’s ability to participate in everyday activities.  Children struggling with sleeping, eating, bathing, self care, coordinating body movements, interacting with others and exploring and playing can benefit from Occupational Therapy.
