Occupational Therapy - Services

Services at Appelbaum Vision

Occupational Therapy improves balance, postural control, muscle tone, strength, and motor planning to improve skilled movement and coordination needed for play, safety, endurance, daily living skills, and confidence in movement.

Occupational Therapy improves sensory processing which is the foundation needed for successful movement, attention, comfort, and daily living.

When adequate sensory processing has not developed in a child or has been affected through illness or an accident in an adult, life can be disrupted and difficult.

When an individual's system overreacts to sensory input, simple everyday sensations such as sound, light, movement, smell, touch, or pain can be overwhelming and difficult to manage resulting in emotional or behavioral issues. For others who may under-respond to sensation, different emotional or behavioral issues may be experienced. Disorders in sensory processing can impact alertness, attention, behavior, social skills, emotions, coordination, eating, and daily living.
