Occupational and Physical Therapy

Mountain View Occupational & Physical Therapy provides coaching, training, and skills to provide individuals the ability to manage daily living skills and maintain their functional independence.

Our highly skilled occupational therapists focus on the improvement of developmental disabilities, fine and gross motor delays, learning difficulties, and physical disabilities. We work to facilitate a child’s age-appropriate fine motor skills, improving handwriting, visual motor skills, upper body strength, attention span, organization skills, coordination, and body/spatial awareness.

The priorities for our pediatric occupational and physical therapists are child/teen’s physical development, sensory processing skills, cognitive skills, social/emotional development process, and gross motor skills (the body’s large muscle groups, enabling them to reach their targeted level of functional independence).
