RPTA specializes in therapies for children who have differences in sensory processing and sensory integration. Many of our approaches are based upon the work of sensory integration pioneer, Dr. A. Jean Ayres.
Does your child have a medical diagnosis or developmental condition that may be interfering with their acquisition of skills?
- Autistic Spectrum Disorder
- Learning disabilities
- Attention deficit disorder
- Fine and gross motor coordination
- Developmental delays
- Other psychological and neurological conditions
Occupational and physical therapy in a clinic setting can provide or supplement services you may be already receiving for your child.
Recovery of function
Has your child suffered an illness and/or injury that required surgery or casting and is now ready to regain lost skills?
Both occupational therapy and physical therapy can assist children in regaining lost skills, developing new skills and assist with accommodations, if needed, to achieve independence and quality of life. This can include child-oriented activities and exercises to improve strength, develop range of motion and achieve motor skills.
Has your child been identified as a child who gets overwhelmed easily, has sensory integration issues or difficulty completing daily routines? Some children may have differences in the way in which they take in sensory information, integrate it and then produce observable behaviors. This is called Sensory Integration Dysfunction or a Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).
