Occupations are the everyday activities that make up your child’s life. From sleeping and resting to playing, learning, interacting with friends and completing self-care tasks throughout the day, your child is constantly practicing new occupations that help them function and interact with the world.
Typically, we don’t think about our children’s daily occupations until we see them struggle. Occupational therapy PRIOCARE Therapy CENTER is an effective tool for helping your child improve their ability to perform everyday tasks they may struggle with and develop critical physical, cognitive and social skills.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy at PRIOCARE
Our occupational therapy team begins every child’s treatment with a thorough evaluation of their existing skills, goals and any specific conditions that may be affecting their abilities to complete everyday occupations. This information allows your child’s therapist to work with you to create a custom treatment plan backed by scientific evidence and expertise.
Occupational therapy treatments typically consist of supporting your child in different activities, giving them physical exercises to help increase strength and dexterity and helping them to develop healthy habits and life skills.
Advantages of Occupational Therapy for Kids
The primary benefit of occupational therapy is giving your child the support needed to develop essential skills, achieve goals and more easily complete everyday tasks. We’ll help your child work to overcome specific challenges or focus on more general improvements in basic motor functions, reasoning abilities, self-help skills or compensation for permanent losses of function.
Our facility also provides a comprehensive range of other therapy services to ensure we’re meeting your child’s needs and giving them the support they need to thrive.
