How to decode the skills involved in dressing yourself, holding a pencil or scissors, reading emotions, hand-eye the ability to regulate yourself?
Occupational therapy looks at modifying the environment to change the way your brain perceives information. It supports key sensorimotor abilities, or readiness skills, necessary for physical, visual, auditory, postural, self-regulatory, and social/emotional skills. These skills and abilities are necessary not just in early childhood, but continue to support our optimal growth, wholeness, health, development and creativity all throughout life.
Occupational Therapy is about supporting children and adults to develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults.
The Foundation of Learning
Do you feel your child is academically underachieving?
They may not have the skills necessary to sit and take in the information, look clumsy in their movement and postures, have difficultly paying attention, holding a pen or following instructions.
If you look at the Pyramid of Learning you can see that you need to take a bottom up approach – targeting the sensory processing modalities is required to make changes to behavioral as well as academic learning.
Thinking and learning are not all in our head. For some children, some of these stages or ‘core foundation skills’ are underdeveloped, missing or inefficient which can often have a domino effect on many other areas.
Our entire brain structure is intimately connected to and grown by the movement mechanisms within our body. My job is to help ‘re-wire’ these connections so that these academic skills can even be accessed. “A well-trained nervous system is the greatest friend a mind can have.”
