Heartspring Occupational Therapists are skilled professionals licensed through the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts. Through standardized testing, clinical observations and caretaker reports, our occupational therapists assess functional skill levels in many areas of a child's life. Functional skills may include: a child's ability to play, dress, feed self, manipulate small toys, process sensory information and coordinate eye hand movements. Once therapy is recommended by an OT, a treatment plan is established including goals, direct services and a home program. Our occupational therapists are experts in helping children develop their fine motor and sensory motor skills for school, work, play, leisure, and self-help tasks.
Our therapists believe a child will achieve goals and gain the highest level of independence when the family is included as members of the therapy team. This insures that newly developed skills are carried through active family participation and team work.
By exploring, interacting with people, manipulating objects, and overcoming strategic challenges, Heartspring kids learn to increase their functional independence in activities of daily living while having fun at the same time.
