How Occupational Therapy Works?
We take in information through our senses. If these are not working in sync or are receiving information incorrectly, the intelligent brain misinterprets the information received. Sensory Integration Treatment enhances the optimal processing of information so that the child is able to respond appropriately to the variety of information that they receive.
Perceptual Enrichment programme focuses on activities of visual and auditory processing required for reading, writing, copying from the blackboard, and following instructions
Occupational Therapy can be done individually or in small groups depending on the requirement of the child.
Neuro - developmental therapy works on tone, muscle strength, balance, gait, gross motor and fine motor functions.
The Occupational Therapists also screen Kindergarten students from various mainstream schools, so that students who have even mild difficulties can receive timely intervention in order to succeed in academics as they continue on in school.
