At Southeast Little Learners, we provide occupational therapy to support the development of fine and gross motor skills, body awareness and coordination, sensory processing, and self-care skills.
We will begin with an evaluation to understand your child's current skill levels and how they are functioning within their daily environment. Following the evaluation, we collaborate with parents to develop an individualized therapy plan.
Once therapy begins, we deliver services onsite in our daycare or in your home. We take a play-based approach while integrating daily activities, games, and preferred activities to keep your child motivated and engaged.
Sensory Integration Therapy
Our pediatric occupational therapist has advanced training and certification in sensory integration.
Sensory integration therapy uses play, movement, and structured exposure to sensory input to increase a child's sensory response so they can function more comfortably in their daily environment.
Our therapist will develop a comprehensive picture of your child's sensory profile and tailor therapy to address their unique goals within their natural environment.
Below are some signs your child may be experiencing a fine motor or sensory delay or disorder. Every child develops at their own pace; however, if you are concerned about your child's development, please give us a call. We are here to answer your questions and help you determine if an evaluation is recommended.
Our team recommends an occupational therapy evaluation if your child is experiencing any of the following:
Easily overwhelmed in noisy environments
Poor body awareness or difficulty with physical boundaries
Oversensitivity to noise, sound, touch, light, and movement
Difficulty wearing certain clothing or shoes
Challenges sitting still or paying attention
Difficulty holding a crayon or pencil correctly
Messy or delayed handwriting
Challenges using two hands together to manipulate an object
Difficulty with scissors, utensils, or other tools
Delayed self-care (toilet training, feeding one's self, getting dressed, etc.)
Prematurity (e.g. low tone, positioning, motor delays)
