Therapy Services For Children


Atlas Physical Therapy

Your child's only job is to be a kid. Occupational therapists work with children who might need specialized assistance to lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives due to physical, developmental and/or social problems. Additionally, all of our staff is trained in the SCERTS Model: a comprehensive educational approach for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Some of the areas Occupational Therapy can help with are:

  • Instruction in and adaptation of self-care skills
  • Developing gross and fine-motor skills
  • Handwriting
  • Sensory processing/modulation
  • Self-regulation
  • Improving visual motor skills – information that is perceived and processed with motor skills
  • Improving graphomotor skills – a combination of cognitive, perceptual and motor skills which enable a person to write
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • School-readiness
  • Core and upper extremity strengthening
  • Achieving developmental milestones
  • Motor planning
  • Visual perception – how the brain makes sense of what it sees
