Occupational Therapy

At the Apple Valley Center for Special Kids, we are fully equipped with cutting-edge tools and strategies, offering a diverse range of Sensory & Motor treatment options tailored to meet the unique needs of your child. These options encompass periodic consultation as well as weekly individual interventions.

Our Occupational Therapy is designed to guide children through sensory stimulation, transitioning them from an over-sensitive or under-reactive state to improve their Activities of Daily Living (ADL). This encompasses enhancements in their performance at school, home, and within the community.

Under the guidance of our skilled therapists, your child will undergo development and improvement in various areas, including:

  • Fine and Gross Motor Skills: Enhancing coordination and control over small and large muscle movements.
  • Bilateral Coordination Skills: Developing the ability to use both sides of the body together effectively.
  • Regulation Skills: Improving the capacity to regulate responses to sensory input.
  • Social, Emotional, and Cognitive Skills: Enhancing interpersonal, emotional, and cognitive abilities.
  • Essential Living Skills: Improving daily activities such as dressing, bathing, teeth brushing, and self-feeding.

This comprehensive approach not only contributes to the enhancement of your child’s social, emotional, and academic performance but also nurtures increased self-confidence.

Our sensory integration programs at the Apple Valley Center are specifically designed to address the needs of children facing challenges in modulating sensory input, which can impact their daily functioning in various settings.

Some indicators of such challenges may include:

  • Unusual sensitivity to clothing or self-care.
  • Inability to sit still.
  • Awkward or clumsy movements.
  • Easily disturbed by loud noises.
  • Poor body awareness.
  • Discomfort with messy hands or face.
  • Use of excessive or inadequate force.
  • Frequent collisions with people or objects.
  • Difficulty transitioning between places or activities.
  • Aversion to different textures.
  • Picky eating habits.
  • Displaying a strong need for control.

Through our specialized programs, we aim to address these concerns and facilitate the overall well-being and development of each child entrusted to our care.
