Occupational Therapy

The primary occupation of childhood is to grow, learn and play - allowing the child to live life to their fullest potential. Occupational Therapy (OT) focuses on developing motor skills, sensory-processing abilities, coordination, peer interaction, play and self-care skills to participate in daily life activities. We offer a comprehensive occupational therapy evaluation and customized treatment plans.

To get started, contact our intake coordinator at 630.282.2022 to ask questions or for scheduling.
