Constraint Induced Movement Therapy [CIMT]
CIMT is sometimes used for children with hemiplegia or brachial plexus injuries to encourage learning and volitional movement of the involved side through intensive practice.
Sensory Integration Treatment
Children diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction can receive therapy services in our state-of-the-art treatment gym. The gym is equipped with suspended equipment, a ball pool, trampoline, and a variety of other sensory modalities to address the individual needs of each child.
Therapeutic Listening Programs
Therapeutic listening is a sensory modality utilized to enhance a child’s “sensory diet.” Our therapists are trained and certified in the use of therapeutic listening techniques.
The department offers splinting services as well as assessment and training for ADL equipment.
Occupational Therapists participate in multidisciplinary team assessments including the Multidisciplinary Evaluation Center (MDEC), the Florence Robertson Pediatric Rehabilitation Clinic, the Feeding Team, and the High-Risk Infant Follow-Up Clinic, and make recommendations based on evaluation findings.
