We are a practice with extensive skills and experience in assessing, diagnosing, and treating Sensory Processing Disorder or SPD. Our Therapist Brinda Mehta is a Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) certified therapist.
At OM Therapy our focus is on OT, However, while referring out for Behavior therapy who are truly in need of separate Behavior Modification Therapy, It is important understanding the core concepts and having the ability to utilize behavior modification techniques in any therapy session for that matter is an absolute must and surely a plus for the student, the therapist, and ultimately, the child’s growth and development.
Social skills are the skills we use to communicate and interact with others. They include both verbal communication with words and greetings, and non-verbal communication such as gestures, body language, and eye contact.
Cognitive problem-solving skills training attempts to decrease a child’s inappropriate or disruptive behaviors by teaching the child new skills for approaching situations that previously provoked negative behavior.
Early handwriting skills (pre-writing skills) are developed through play. All those play activities a child undertakes and masters in their pre-school years sets them up for successful handwriting development once they commence school.
We are pleased to now offer Telehealth OT services all around Florida.
