Occupational Therapy Services specialize in the evaluation and treatment for children and adolescents with fine motor, visual motor, self-care, coordination, and sensory processing challenges.
Occupational Therapy Services help children develop adaptive skills that will help them persist with challenging tasks, tolerate daily routines, and develop self-help skills; also helping children improve their coordination to develop new motor skills.
The In-Depth Assessment and Treatment Plan will help your child improve their attention, frustration tolerance, and their motivation to persist with challenging activities by making it FUN! We address each child’s individual neurodevelopment and sensory needs and focus on treatment strategies that are functional, practical, and help meet the goals of the family.

While every child learns differently and progresses at a different rate, a child developing at a normal rate tends to hit certain developmental milestones. Access our developmental checklists as a guideline for how to track your child’s progress. If your child has not yet hit the suggested milestones for his or her age, contact our office. We can help identify whether your child might benefit from occupational therapy.
All services provided by Creating Pathways are on an outpatient basis.
