Child & Family Development Child & Family Development

Occupational Therapy

We provide services to children, teens and young adults with developmental, neurological and congenital impairments. Services can be habilitative (learning a skill for the first time) or rehabilitative (becoming more proficient at a skill or relearning a skill).

Therapy visits focus on helping kids with everyday activities, staying organized and focused in the classroom or playground, managing sensory input and their own behaviors, as well as stretching and strengthening their muscles.

In their own words

We have been coming to Child and Family Development for many many years and can’t recommend Marion enough! She is an amazing OT and does an incredible job addressing my son’s goals while making it a fun experience for him. He’s made so much progress and we attribute so much of that to working with Marion!
