Discover the Power of Occupational Therapy
& Confidence in Children
The Journey Towards Independence
Pediatric occupational therapy is a specialized approach that fosters the development of the skills a child needs for daily activities such as dressing, eating, and school performance. Our therapists assess your child’s skills against age-appropriate developmental milestones. But, it doesn’t stop at practical skills.
OT also focuses on enhancing your child’s social and behavioral skills, boosting their confidence, and fostering a strong sense of accomplishment.
Unleashing the Power of Play
At Foundations Therapy, we understand that a child’s “occupation” is to play, learn, and grow. We harness this instinct, using play as a therapeutic tool. In our nurturing environment, therapists, children, and caregivers engage, interact, and play, transforming each session into a meaningful and motivating experience.
Our occupational therapists evaluate and treat the child using evidence-based practices, meaning that therapy sessions are client-centered and supported by quality research. The “magic” is using play as a therapeutic tool to improve a child’s occupations which promotes health, well-being, and overall quality of life.

OTs collaborate with parents, caregivers, teachers, and other healthcare professionals to provide a holistic approach to support the child’s development and improve their functional abilities in various environments. Pediatric OTs address a range of areas, including:

The Astronaut Training Program is crucial for promoting sensory integration in children.
The Alert Program is a strategic tool that helps children understand their sensory needs and regulate their alertness levels. It’s particularly helpful for tasks requiring high mental engagement.
