Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on assisting children with promoting independence in activities of everyday life.

Our Occupational Therapists take great pride in enhancing children and families’ quality of life by facilitating the development of self-regulation, sensory processing, fine motor skills and social skills.


Pediatric occupational therapy helps children with a wide range of diagnoses, including, but not limited, to the following:

  • Prematurity
  • Developmental delay
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Genetic syndromes
  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Cancer & blood-related diagnoses
  • Sports injures
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Neurological injuries
  • Intellectual disability
  • Sensory processing disorder (SPD)


Pediatric occupational therapy is designed to help infants and adolescents improve independence with daily activities, such as feeding, dressing, playing, and learning skills by improving their motor, sensory, behavioral, and cognitive capabilities.

Activities may include but are not limited to:

  • Fine motor skills and hand function
  • Sensory Integration
  • Visual motor Integration
  • Balance and posture control
  • Strengthening and coordination
  • Self-help skills


A child might benefit from an occupational therapy evaluation and/or ongoing treatment if they experience the following:

  • Delayed milestones
  • Poor fine motor skills
  • Limited independence with self-care skills
  • Decreased hand-eye coordination
  • Experiencing difficulties in school with visual-motor or visual-perceptual activities
  • Weakness in the arms or trunk
  • Tight or stiff muscles
  • Clumsiness/difficulty coordinating the use of both hands together
  • Trouble “keeping up” with the activities of same-aged children

I can’t say enough amazing things about Good Beginnings and their staff!  I was having difficulty with my daughter, but couldn’t articulate or understand what the issue was.  The evaluation was extremely helpful in diagnosing and understanding her better and helped to show us a road forward.  Once we started therapy, We saw so much progress with my daughter even within just a few weeks.  She absolutely loved going because of the fun & caring atmosphere.  I highly encourage any parent struggling to reach out to Good Beginnings.

After eight months with our therapists at Good Beginnings, our daughter walks straight, auditory processing delay is minimized, and she knows all her numbers and letters! The therapists established a unique, most beneficial relationship with our daughter, with an optimal, individualized approach to each and every session.

Calling Sara Weiser was the only person I felt comfortable contacting when I began my journey after the birth of my son.  She was the OT for my classroom during my first year teaching special education.  Good Beginnings expertly diagnosed him at 2 months old and he began a treatment plan for Torticollis and delayed reflexes.  At 18 months old, they expertly diagnosed him with OT and PT deficits and we began a treatment plan that he was on for 3-4 years, with yearly check ins after that.  Today at 12, he is a thriving competitive athlete in baseball, wrestling, and flag football and successful Dean’s list student.  I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else
