Giant Steps Occupational Therapy

Our holistic, research-based approach to occupational therapy is tailored to individual needs and parent concerns. We help kids take part in their daily occupations including developing play skills, taking care of themselves, using tools to draw and write, and managing the environment around them. Often we use a child-directed, sensory integration approach to help kids better function in everyday activities.

Parents often seek out an occupational therapist because their child is  demonstrating some or all of the following behaviors:

  • Excessive and intense outbursts and tantrums with possible harm to self or others
  • Difficulty wearing a variety of clothing
  • Relying on rigid routines and rituals
  • Oversensitive to noise, sound, touch, and movement
  • Impulsive, unsafe and unpredictable
  • Difficulty paying attention and organizing themselves for school and home life
  • Clumsy and inefficient when moving through space
  • Difficulties with handwriting and other fine motor tasks
  • Difficulty making friends and playing alone or with friends
  • Poor self-esteem and self-concept
  • Difficulty performing daily routines.
