Occupational Therapy

Encouraging kids to be more independent through self-care, handling emotions, motor skills, and sensory play

About Occupational Therapy Services

What do kids aim for to feel successful and independent? They want to play, learn, connect with friends, be self-reliant, and take pride in themselves.

At AIGAS, our Occupational Therapy is here to help children achieve these goals. We support kids in managing emotions, interacting with peers, taking care of themselves (like dressing, feeding, and hygiene), and building strength for active play.

We believe in making therapy enjoyable, safe, and inviting because, after all, a kid is just a kid. Our goal? Life-changing results.

What to Expect in Occupational Therapy

Evaluation
The journey begins with a one-hour evaluation by a licensed therapist, held in person at our clinic. Activities take place in our sensory gym or a private treatment room. Our therapists bring playfulness and warmth to make your child feel comfortable. After the evaluation, we take 1-2 weeks to provide a summary report with findings and recommendations, determining future therapy goals and sessions.

Sessions
Our 1-on-1 Occupational Therapy sessions occur in our clinics, specifically in our sensory gym. Parents are welcome to leave during the hour if they wish. Therapists use equipment and workstations to complete exercises and monitor progress on current goals. As goals are achieved, new ones are added to the evaluation. After each session, therapists discuss your child’s performance with parents.

Achieving Outcomes
Data-driven progress monitoring is key. Our Clinical Directors oversee treatment plans, ensuring children are making strides. When goals are met, therapists refer to the evaluation to set new goals and discuss any concerns with parents. Annually, a re-evaluation measures your child’s progress since beginning services.
