Occupational Therapy at Atmore Community Hospital for Pediatrics to Geriatrics

Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent--or live better with--injury, illness, or disability.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy:
A comprehensive evaluation will be performed and client-centered treatment plans will be developed to help your child reach his or her potential. The therapist will work to prevent, develop, improve, sustain, or restore the child's abilities and skills that allow him or her to perform meaningful daily activities and routines. The therapist will collaborate with families and other medical professionals who work closely with your child to ensure a well-rounded team approach to client care. In addition to helping your child meet his or her fine motor, self-care, and handwriting milestones, the therapist can provide sensory integration therapy, feeding therapy, and visual-motor therapy.
