Occupational therapists assist children and their caregivers to build skills that enable them to participate in meaningful occupations such as: feeding, playing, socializing, and attending school. Occupational therapy helps the child achieve maximum participation in his environment. Occupational therapy sees the child as a holistic being, and considers all aspects of his life.
Children are referred to occupational therapy due to various reasons: difficulty in acquiring writing skills, sensory regulation disorders, delays in gross motor and fine motor skills as well as developmental delays and disorders.
Occupational therapy treatments at Hapaot Center are conducted by occupational therapists with extensive experience in child development that receive weekly group and individual guidance. Therapists also enjoy the many trainings offered by hapaot center's Professional Training Unit, and bring these new taught skills into the clinic.
The Center emphasizes parents' involvement and believes that the parents are significant to the success of the treatment.
