Specialized Occupational Therapists (OTs), with knowledge and experience in evaluating developmental difficulties and obstacles in children and young adults, and with specialized expertise in sensory integration therapy, apply the Occupational Therapy Science at “Psychomotor Athens”. The goal of occupational therapy is to help children achieve the maximum level of age-appropriate independence and functionality in every-day living, both at home and at school and in their community. We aid both children and adolescents with psychomotor and developmental difficulties such as: pervasive developmental disorder- PDD, sensory integration difficulties, developmental coordination disorder, learning difficulties, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – ADHD, opposite defiant disorder, etc.

A child will display a need for occupational therapy when he/she develops difficulties in one of the following developmental domains:

  • gross motor skills
  • fine motor skills
  • cognitive, perceptual skills
  • sensory integration
  • visual-motor coordination
  • motor planning skills
  • oral motor skills
  • play skills
  • daily living skills
  • social and emotional skills

Working with parents and their requests, along with the testing results of each child, our team plans the most appropriate program for that child. At regular intervals, the occupational therapists are in contact with the rest of the multi-disciplinary team members. We perform follow-ups on the child and discuss that child’s progress and individual maturity growth.
