Innovative Methods

My Kids Therapy blends sensory integration, developmental psychology, and Floortime-based therapy approaches to provide individualized treatment. Our highly trained therapists provide a welcoming environment where clients can explore and grow. During the evaluation process, therapists work to understand clients’ nervous system and their ability to process a wide variety of information from the environment. Clients’ strengths, areas of need, and individual differences are incorporated to develop purposeful and goal-directed activities. We believe providing education to parents and caregivers enables them to actively participate in the treatment process, which further increases client’s independence across all environments and social situations.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) focuses on supporting individuals’ engagement in life and their daily activities or occupations. In pediatrics these occupations include play, leisure, school, social participation, and self-care (e.g. dressing, eating, toileting, personal hygiene). Occupational therapists use a whole-person approach to evaluation and treatment, which enables them to identify and address underlying or foundational skills needed to fully participate in these daily activities.

At My Kids Therapy we focus on helping the child’s nervous system improve sensory, visual-perceptual, motor, cognitive, social, and emotional skills and apply these in all environments (home, school, community, etc.). During treatment, play- based activities are utilized to facilitate the development of skills, confidence, and independence. Our occupational therapists design activities that capitalize on the child’s strengths and provide the “just right challenge” to promote skill development and mastery.
