The parents searching for private occupational therapists in Manhattan often connect with us. Most of the children face developmental or learning disabilities. Various children also find it difficult to adjust socially. All these kids have received benefits through OT sessions.

Lots of parents find it challenging to decide whether their child needs the support of a therapist. We, at East Side OT, use latest assessment tools to help them identify what’s the exact issue.

It is at this stage that the treatment is recommended if the child needs it. The aim of the therapy is to enable the children to perform their daily life activities independently. After attending the sessions from our therapists, the children found it easier to perform the activities like dressing, brushing, toileting, drawing, etc.

A common issue is a difficulty in paying attention while in school or even at home. A major reason behind such behavior is sensory processing issues. It is often observed that these children prefer avoiding recess and other activities. With occupational therapy, the students can overcome these problems and find it easier to indulge in such activities.

The focus, sometimes, is to work on the fine and gross motor skills. If the therapy focuses on gross motor skills, the children will find improvement related to the movement of muscles in legs and arms. Improvement related to small muscles in fingers and forearm is observed if the therapy focuses on fine motor skills.

The kids, who find it difficult to communicate with other individuals, due to sensory processing disorder, can also receive the benefits of this therapy. The therapists can also help your children improve handwriting by identifying the root cause.
