Cornerstone Therapies Provides
Occupational Therapy

  1. Individual OT
    Occupational Therapy (OT) is the profession that addresses the “occupation” of living at any age by promoting health and well-being and enabling individuals to participate in the activities of everyday life.  Occupational therapists in a clinic-based pediatric setting address needs including self-care skills (e.g. dressing, hygiene, and grooming), feeding abilities, fine motor skills, visual-motor and visual-perceptual skills, grapho-motor/handwriting, social skills and peer interaction, and sensory processing and sensory-regulation. 

    Occupational Therapy is provided by licensed  Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants.  A variety of modalities is utilized during therapy including sensorimotor activities, arts and crafts, developmentally appropriate play, tabletop activities, and strengthening and therapeutic exercises in order to enhance children’s ability to participate or to provide support for increasing their independence through environmental modification.

    • “The WRITE Stuff” (SUMMER CAMP)
      Our handwriting group is designed for school-age children to address fundamental pre-writing and writing skills necessary for increased success and independence in school. This class focuses on the development of fine motor skills through upper body and upper extremity strengthening activities. This class also specifically addresses the components of handwriting including spacing of letters, sizing, and letter formation, for increased speed and legibility of written work. The “Handwriting without Tears” program and specialized techniques are utilized in the handwriting group. The group is organized to match peers with similar skill levels in order to facilitate peer motivation and interaction.

    • “Room to Thrive”
      The primary goals of childhood include playing, learning, and growing.  Play allows children to be creative, master skills, problem-solve, and develop cognitive, emotional and physical maturity.  A child’s home is one of his or her first learning environment.  Organization and use of space, toy selection, and sensory stimuli are especially important in facilitating a child’s ability to thrive in his or her natural environment.  Our occupational therapists can assist with assessing a child’s individual development and sensory needs and help develop specific strategies to modify the environment to support play skills. 

      Please contact our office at (714) 962-6760 to set up an appointment for a screening or if you would like additional information.
