Promoting and Enhancing Skills for Children in a Specialized Setting
SMART Pediatric Therapy is a sensory-based outpatient clinic that offers occupational therapy evaluation and treatment in a sensory-rich environment primarily for children ages 0-18. We specialize in SPD (sensory processing disorder), and our goal is to help children detect, regulate, interpret, and execute appropriate motor and behavioral responses to sensations. We take a holistic approach, focusing on the whole child (and whole family) and address the foundational, underlying issues that lead to dysfunction in gross and fine motor skills, social interactions, handwriting, sensory-motor skills, visual-motor integration, visual processing and perception, auditory processing, self-care, and school/academic challenges. Our goal is to enable the child to experience success at his/her “occupation” of playing with friends, learning at school, completing daily routines (eating, dressing, sleeping, etc.), and enjoying typical family life.
We provide one-on-one individualized therapy tailored to each child’s unique strengths, deficits, neurological functioning, and foundational skills, with an emphasis on parent involvement and education.
