Occupational Therapy

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.

 
 

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​

  • Toe-walking​

  • 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)
