Pediatric Occupational Therapy in Colorado Springs

A core value of pediatric occupational therapy is providing family-centered care and service. The needs, desires, and values of the adult and family drive the direction of OT assessments and intervention. The focus of occupational therapy intervention directly reflects the adult's and/or family's priorities.

The educational background of Occupational therapists includes extensive course work in anatomy, neurology and psychology. Their education also includes course work in activity analysis. This enables the therapist to analyze the components of a play or work activity with which an adult might be struggling and choose tasks for sessions that will improve the adult's skills most effectively - while still being fun of course!

Developmental Needs

Helping Adults to Thrive and Grow.

The primary occupations of adults are to enjoy their gross motor functions and interactive well with caregivers. Occupational therapists evaluate and adult’s development and provide intervention to improve skills and/or modify environments when concerns arise about an adult’s functional performance.

• Help an adult learn to follow 2 or 3- step instructions.
• Help an adult develop the ability to dress independently.
• Improve an adult's independence in ADLs such as dressing, bathing, transfers, and hygiene.
• Improve an adult’s gross motor and fine motor coordination to enable object manipulation.
• Help an adult learn to cope with disappointment or failure.
• Reduce extraneous environmental noise for an adult who is easily distracted to focus attention.
• Help an adult develop the ability to use tools and materials in both traditional and creative manners.
• Improve an adult's safety through increased balance and gross motor skills.
