occupational Therapy Services

Word of Mouth Therapy supports your child in developing skills for everyday activities of living. Our mission is to help your child achieve their occupational therapy goals through activities that are both playful and functional!


Our occupational therapists will start by collecting information about your child's overall development. The evaluation process typically includes the following:

  • A parent interview

  • Observation of current abilities

  • Formal and informal assessment measures to identify sensory, motor, and regulation concerns

Once the evaluation is complete, we will provide you with a written report that includes our findings and recommendations for the next best step. If occupational therapy is needed, we will work together to create therapy goals and a treatment plan for your child.

our approach

We teach new skills during play! Depending on your child's unique strengths, challenges, and interests, our therapy sessions may include activities such as: 

  • Play scenarios

  • Obstacle courses

  • Food exploration

  • Self-care routines

  • Sensory activities

Word of Mouth is committed to family-centered care. We educate and support parents, making sure that you can confidently help your child participate in the everyday activities that matter most to them.

self-care skills

Self-care skills are vital for independence! We will meet your child where they are and support them in developing skills needed to take care of their body. Our sessions will focus on daily routines like:

  • Self-feeding

  • Dressing

  • Shoe-tying

  • Grooming

  • Toileting

  • Personal hygiene


Your child will gain confidence in themselves while having fun as they practice fastening buttons on stuffed animals, using utensils in a sensory bin, and more!

Fine motor and
visual motor skills

Many activities in your child's day require them to process visual information and complete movements by coordinating small muscle groups in their forearms, wrists, hands, and fingers. Our sessions will focus on building skills needed for common play and academic tasks such as:

  • Stacking blocks

  • Stringing beads

  • Holding pencils, markers, and scissors

  • Buttoning and zipping pieces together

  • Completing puzzles

  • Reading and writing


We will also provide fine motor and visual motor activities that can be completed at home for continued practice between therapy sessions.

Sensory Processing and
Emotional Regulation

Does your child struggle to tolerate certain sounds, smells, visuals, or textures? Do they have a hard time regulating their own emotions? Our occupational therapists are trained to provide regulatory supports for both sensory processing challenges and emotional challenges. We facilitate self-regulation using activities such as:

  • Blowing bubbles

  • Jumping on the trampoline

  • Squeezing fidget toys

  • Riding on a scooter board

  • Rolling on a large therapy ball

  • Swinging on a sensory swing

Depending on your child's individual needs, our goal is to help them decrease meltdowns, respond well to changes and transitions, and participate in daily activities. Outside of direct therapy, we also provide sensory diets, parent education, and home programs to support self-regulation at home and school.

Sensory Feeding

Our occupational therapists will engage your child in food play to introduce various foods and textures! Our goal is to make food exploration fun and stress-free so that your child can expand their food inventory and experience success during mealtimes. Therapy activities may involve:

  • Playing with food in sensory bins

  • Finger painting with pureed food

  • Making a simple snack together with at least one preferred food that the child typically eats

  • Using cookie cutters to cut food into different shapes

Sensory feeding helps picky eaters expand their limited diet, decrease refusal and mealtime behaviors, decrease fear around certain foods, and have more fun at mealtimes!
