Pediatric Occupational Therapy in Michigan

Occupational therapists are experts in your child’s occupation “play”. At Blossom we meet your child where they are at developmentally and individualize treatment to target the concerns of families and your child. Our therapists start by building therapeutic relationships, then build on skills needed to progress along the developmental ladder across the following areas: sensory processing, engagement, functional movement, play, and learning skills that children require to fully participate in everyday tasks across various environments.

Collaboration is Key with our Occupational Therapy Treatment Plans

Parent input is a vital part of the success of your child’s progress in Occupational Therapy. We work closely with you (the parent/guardian) to identify your greatest area(s) of concern and together we identify goals to drive your child’s treatment plan. We provide ongoing communication and encourage parents to join sessions to connect progress in session and at home.
