Occupational therapists at Brazosport Rehabilitation & Wellness
specialize in treatment for sensory integration disorders, feeding
difficulties, fine motor coordination deficits, and environmental
access through the use of technology.

Occupational Therapy for Children

Children with special needs often demonstrate delays and deficits
in their abilities to complete daily living activities. These deficits
impact their ability to participate in their roles as students, sons or
daughters, siblings, and playmates. The occupational therapist
will complete a comprehensive and individualized evaluation to
determine the child's specific needs, and will design a treatment
plan to address the deficits. Treatment will then occur on a
consistent basis, addressing the deficit areas, and working
closely with the child and family to achieve as much
independence in these areas as possible.

Occupational Therapy Treatment may focus on:
  • Activities of Daily Living (dressing, toileting, grooming)
  • Sensory Processing/Integration
  • Eating and Feeding Skills
  • Developmental Stimulation
  • Visual Motor/Perceptual Skills
  • Handwriting Skills
  • Fine Motor Skills

Sensory Integration Dysfunction and Treatment
Sensory integration dysfunction is a term used to define
difficulties processing information taken in through our senses.  
This condition often results in diminished abilities to complete
basic, daily life functions, such as dressing, grooming, socializing,
and mobility.  It is a complex neurological disorder, and is
manifested by difficult decoding and interpreting sensory

Treatment at BRW is provided by an occupational therapist.  It
involves stimulating the senses in many different ways to lessen
the effects of sensory integration dysfunction.  

Occupational Therapy for Adults

Occupational Therapists (OT’s) help people improve their ability
to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments.  
They work with individuals who have conditions that are mentally,
physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling.  They also
help them to develop, recover, or maintain daily living and work
skills.  OT’s help clients not only improve their basic motor
functions and reasoning abilities, but also to compensate for
permanent loss of function.   Their goal is to help clients have
independent, productive, and satisfying lives.  

Occupational therapists assist clients in performing activities of all
types, ranging from using a computer to caring for daily needs
such as dressing, cooking, and eating.  Physical exercises may
be used to increase strength and dexterity, while other activities
may be chosen to improve visual acuity and the ability to discern
patterns.   Programs are also developed to treat individuals
whose ability to function in a work environment has been
impaired.  These therapists arrange employment, evaluate the
work environment, plan work activities and assess the client’s
progress.  Therapist also may collaborate with the client and the
employer to modify the work environment so that the work can be
successfully completed.
