Occupational Therapy

beyond the spectrum line

Occupational therapy is concerned with an individual’s ability to participate in daily life activities or “occupations”. We address the physical, cognitive, psychosocial, sensory, and other aspects of occupational performance in a variety of contexts. We are here to support such activities that affect health, well-being, and quality of life for each child. 

The role of an Occupational Therapist is to facilitate participation for individuals in the home, school, workplace, community and other settings. These services promote health and wellness to those who have or are at risk of developing an illness, injury, disease, disorder, condition, impairment, disability, activity limitation, or participation restriction. A child’s occupation is play, which we will provide therapy in a fun exciting way to help them overcome any obstacles.

Pediatric Occupational Therapists specialize in providing therapy to infants, toddlers, and children who have or who is at risk for developmental delays or disabilities.

At Beyond The Spectrum, Occupational therapists use their expertise to prepare children for important learning and school-related activities that will help them fulfill their role as students.

Through an understanding of the impact of disability, illness, and impairment of a child’s development, plan, ability to learn new skills, and overall occupational performance, occupational therapists design interventions that promote healthy development, establish needed skills, and/or modify environments, all in support of participation in daily activities.
