Helping Children Ages 0-18

At University of Utah Pediatric Occupational Therapy, we work to meet the needs of children from 0-18 years old who have challenges with development and functional performance. This could include overall child development, educational performance, acquired injuries, and emotional-behavioral skills.

For example, your child may have trouble with any of these areas:

  • Overall motor skill development
  • Motor planning and improved coordination
  • Sensory processing disorders
  • Feeding development/feeding challenges
  • Fine motor development
  • Handwriting skills
  • Visual-motor development
  • Social and play skill development
  • Mobility
  • Self-regulatory skills
  • Self-care skills
  • Adaptive behavior
  • Access and use of assistive technology

Our goal at the Life Skills Clinic is to provide professional interventions for children in a fun, family-centered, community environment.

Customized Occupational Therapy Plan

At the Life Skills Clinic, children will have opportunities to improve and expand their own skills and developmental milestones through:

  • natural play schemes,
  • carefully constructed sensory and motor challenges, as well as
  • education-based opportunities.

We design an occupational therapy plan, provided in individual and/or group sessions, tailored to each child.
