Occupational Therapy

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY FROM

Birth to Life

Occupational therapy benefits individuals of all ages by fostering greater independence and active engagement in various aspects of life. It focuses on developing age-appropriate play, daily living, and school-related skills. What sets Little Champs Therapy and Yoga apart is their unique approach of nurturing these abilities in the natural and preferred settings of each individual, be it at home, park, daycare, private school, community, clinic, or ABA therapy center. Their skilled occupational therapy team addresses physical abilities (fine and gross motor skills), sensory processing, visual motor and integration skills, executive functioning, and self-help skills. Collaborating with parents, caregivers, and other therapists, they offer a comprehensive and meaningful approach to therapy sessions for individuals of all ages.

Gross Motor

Gross motor skills for children refer to the development and coordination of large muscle groups, enabling them to perform physical activities like running, jumping, climbing, and balancing. These skills involve the control and movement of the arms, legs, and trunk, allowing children to engage in various physical tasks that contribute to their overall movement and coordination abilities.

Fine Motor

Fine motor skills refer to the precise and coordinated movements of small muscles in the hands, fingers, and wrists. These skills enable us to perform intricate tasks such as writing, drawing, buttoning clothes, using utensils, and manipulating small objects. Developing strong fine motor abilities is crucial for children’s overall development and independence in daily activities.

Sensory Integration

Sensory Integration involves processing information from the senses and combining it with prior knowledge stored in the brain. Occupational Therapists usually conduct Sensory Integration Therapy, assessing developmental levels and identifying sensory-motor processing issues. The therapy takes the form of play, with carefully chosen activities stimulating development in specific areas. Children with lower sensitivity experience strong sensations, while those with heightened sensitivity engage in calming activities. Treats and rewards are used to encourage children to participate in activities they may typically avoid.
