Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) focuses on the child's "occupation" which may include activities that are related to school performance, home performance or play. Fine motor skills such as cutting, coloring, handwriting,buttoning or other self-care skills are often OT goals. CTG specializes in Sensory Integration Therapy, which treats children who have difficulty processing sensory input effectively. These children may be defensive (extremely sensitive) to sensory input, have difficulty regulating their behavior or difficulty knowing where they are in space. They may be sensory seekers or sensory avoiders. They may also have difficulty with motor coordination, planning motor movements, school performance and/or behavioral problems.

Our services include individual occupational therapy evaluations and treatment as well as motor screenings and consultations. Natural environment (home, preschool, etc.) therapy is also available.

Our Occupational Therapists all have expertise in treating children with sensory integration dysfunction and we have therapists certified in administering the SIPT, a specialized sensory integration evaluation as well as therapists trained and certified in the
Therapeutic Listening and Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) Programs. All of our Occupational Therapists are licensed in the State of Kansas and keep current with continuing education throughout the year.
