  • What does an Occupational Therapist do?
 
An Occupational Therapist intervenes to improve following performance areas such as, sensory processing and modulation, oral-motor skills, feeding, handwriting, visual motor abilities, perceptual skills, motor planning, activities of daily living, muscle strength, postural stability, fine and gross motor skills.
 
  • Occupational Therapy Service
 
We provide school based Occupational Therapy in the morning and one to one individual therapy in the afternoon.
Initially the students at Step By Step Centre go through a standardized assessment tool and based on that, an IEP goal for the year is set. We follow a standardized observation instrument designed and validated to measure functional skills. Our therapy services are conducted using the one-to- one approach as well as group session.
 
The sessions are often in a play-like style making it fun filled interactions, and as such sessions are more enjoyable for the children in order to increase the level of success of the therapy.
