We help individuals accomplish their “occupations.”

For children, occupations include playing, learning, and developing their sense of independence. At Family Tree, occupational therapy is focused on helping children develop the motor and visual skills, as well as the self-regulation and social skills necessary to do so. We do this by working with the body in specific movement-based activities and exercises, all within the context of social relationships. Occupational therapy can also help you learn how to modify activities and your environment to help foster the greatest level of success for your child.

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Sensory Integration/Processing Differences
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Dyspraxia
