Occupational Therapy for Special Needs Children

Occupational therapy addresses these issues and helps the child develop their fine motor abilities, basic life skills, cognitive abilities, and good behaviour. The term ‘Occupation’ denotes the everyday tasks that people do to lead their lives. Here it relates to the activities and behaviour expected from a child.

Occupational Therapy At Continua Kids
Our treatment modality varies with the child’s needs. We create a sensory checklist for all the children to understand the abnormality levels in their sense organs. Sensory processing difficulties are common in autistic kids. That is why we apply occupational therapy for autism treatment.
We assign exercises and tasks based on the results and determine their difficulty level. We will observe how your child performs certain activities compared with other kids in the same age group.
Accordingly, we plan a sensory profile or sensory diet for your child. A sensory diet is a structured, personalised schedule of sensory activities for a child to help them manage their daily activities. It enables the proper functioning of sensory receptors to perform more rationally over time.
