Children may require OT with or without  the presence of a medical conditions. However, some kids may be at risk for delays in skills due to medical conditions like:
  • birth injuries or defects
  • brachial plexus injuries
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • developmental delays
  • Cerebral palsy or other movement disorders
  • Down Syndrome

  • traumatic injuries (brain and spinal cord)
We believe that learning is a continuous process. We provide Consultations and educational workshops for health care organizations, schools, universities and other related organizations.
