What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy focuses on helping people of all ages participate in school, work, and other purposeful activities in their daily lives. As a certified pediatric occupational therapist, Yulene aims to promote children's development, enhance their independence, and improve their overall quality of life by addressing their unique physical, cognitive, and emotional needs.

Yulene Developmental Consulting works one-on-one with children and their families to identify areas of improvement and develop effective interventions to improve their daily living and academic skills in a safe, supportive environment.

Why might my child need occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy can help address a wide range of developmental, physical, and cognitive challenges that may affect your child's ability to participate in daily activities, such as:

  • Sensory processing issues
  • Fine motor skills
  • Handwriting problems
  • Executive functioning difficulties
  • Physical limitations
  • Daily activities (dressing, grooming, feeding, etc.)
  • Academic challenges (reading, writing, math)

Incorporating occupational therapy into your child’s care plan may also be helpful if they have a physical, mental, or developmental condition that interferes with daily life, like autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or cerebral palsy.

How is occupational therapy different from physical therapy?

Occupational and physical therapy are similar interventions that can help children achieve greater functionality and independence, but there are key differences.

Occupational therapy focuses on developing or regaining skills to perform daily activities, such as addressing fine motor skills, sensory processing, and cognitive functioning. Physical therapy improves movement and mobility, often following an injury or illness or to address a physical disability. 

Both therapies are important to promote overall health and well-being in children and support them in reaching their developmental milestones.

What can I expect from occupational therapy for my child?

Yulene takes a hybrid approach to care that involves monitoring your child in her office and at your home to develop the most effective treatment plan for their unique needs. She practices many evidence-based therapies and techniques to improve your child’s fine motor coordination, executive functioning, daily living skills, and academic skills, such as handwriting.
