Occupational Therapy

At Beach Kids Therapy Center, our pediatric occupational therapists help children achieve age appropriate functional skills to enhance independent engagement in everyday life activities. We specialize in treating infants to school-aged children with various neurological, genetic and developmental disorders. We provide a play based therapeutic approach that targets the following areas: sensory processing, behavior, attention, fine motor, gross motor, oral motor, visual-motor integration, self-care, feeding and social skills.
