OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

The occupational therapy department focuses on supporting children and enabling them to achieve their maximum potential by identifying, modifying or compensating for barriers that interfere with, restrict, or inhibit their functional performance.

The occupational therapist works with the children by modeling skills and strategies and adapting activities, materials, and environmental conditions so that the children can participate under different conditions and in various settings in any given activity.

An important part of the occupational therapists role in ECIL, is working the sensory room where she/he works on the normalization of the child’s sensory threshold helping her/his brain properly analyze and interpret the sensory stimulation he/she is exposed to.

In addition, the role of the occupational therapist with the families and other adults in the child’s environment occurs in close collaboration with the home visiting department. It consists on giving guidance in regards to the impact of disability, illness, and impairment on the individual child’s development, play, learning, and overall occupational performance, all in the objective to enable the family to help the child develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults.
