BRAINS occupational therapists and physical therapists use a variety of therapies to address many common difficulties in child development. Such difficulties can include poor motor coordination, inattention, hyperactivity, academic problems, pain, and many others.
Specializing in work with children, our occupational and physical therapy team helps families to understand how the child’s brain and body work together. When difficulties occur in this brain-body communication, behavioral or emotional challenges can result. The therapist works with the child to improve this relationship between mind and body in order to improve coordination, calm emotions, or improve other symptoms. The therapist also works with the family to learn how to cope with challenges and use strategies at home and school. Some of the therapies used include sensory integration therapy, Integrated Listening Systems (ILS), Feldenkrais Therapy, and the Anat Baniel Method. Our team will help you decide what therapy might be the best fit for your child.View All Services »
