What we do

Occupational Therapy is a series of exercises both physical and mental designed to help children who have difficulty with day to day life. Our program focuses on fun activities – what children would view as “playing” – that help children develop the skills they need to adapt and help alleviate their daily challenges.

How do I know if my child can benefit from occupational therapy?

Some common things we hear from parents:

  • My child cannot focus on tasks at hand.
  • My child does not seem interested in anything.
  • I’ve noticed that my child does not have as much energy as other children.
  • My child does not pay attention.
  • My child is very forgetful.
  • My child gets very emotional and can be difficult to calm down.

Our duty is to improve a child’s potential. We present solutions to educate children and to assist parents in understanding their child so that they can raise them with ease and joy. Every child is unique with his/her special needs. We give the most suitable solution that matches the need of each individual child. Read more about our programs below.

Sensory Integration

The most important step in promoting your child’s sensory integration is to acknowledge its existence and understand the role it plays in the development of your child. Through a deeper understanding of sensory integration, parents and teachers can provide an abundant environment to steer kids onto the right path to grow healthily.

Fine Motor Movement, Hand Function, Writing Skills

Fine motor movement plays a delicate role in your child's life. We help children build a stable foundation for hand functions, develop better fine motor movements, and work on their writing and hand manipulation skills.  The development of hand function can impact learning in school, independence, peer interaction and how they play games.

Language and Communication Development; Oral Movement Skills

Language is one of the most important elements of communication. It helps us express our emotions, thoughts and needs. The development of language may affect our children’s confidence and social/learning ability. Listening comprehension is another significant element of communication and expression. We need to understand what others are talking about in order to respond properly. That is why we focus so heavily on language development at KickStart. 

Visual Function Training

During development, vision lays a foundation for learning and plays a very important role in how we observe and understand the world. We interpret the information received through our eyes to differentiate all kinds of objects (for example: book, apple, cup, etc.). It also impacts the way we read and write, judge distance and location, and so on.

Social and Interpersonal Skills

Interpersonal and social skills are important for children to blend into their social life. Good emotion control may help children not only to overcome challenges and pressures they face on a day-to-day basis, but also improve their mental health. Additionally, it deeply affects interpersonal relationships and how they adapt to social situations.

Attention & Concentration Program

Attention Concentration Program can improve:

  • Focus performance: concentration, selection, continuity and delegation
  • Memory
  • Alertness modulation
  • Amount of activity
  • Hostility control
  • Stable emotions
  • Overall learning performance

Emotion Regulation Program

Good emotion control may help children not only to overcome challenges and pressure but also to improve mental health development. Additionally, it deeply affects interpersonal relationships and social adaptation.

Alert Program for Self-Regulation

The alert program is one method to help children who struggle to self-regulate.
