There is often a substantial benefit for children with autism to utilize Occupational Therapy to help in their development. Occupational Therapists utilize various strategies to address daily life skills, motor development, adaptive skills, self-regulation and sensory needs, as well as social participation. Adaptive and life competencies include things like brushing teeth, writing, toileting, opening containers, and basic daily life preparation.
Children who are challenged with sensitivity to touch, light and sound sensitivity, as well as balance and positioning in space can benefit from Occupational Therapy. JoyBridge utilizes different rooms in the same clinic to deliver Occupational Therapy in addition to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. This provides a really valuable complement of transformational services in one place.
