Buckeye Therapy Services provides pediatric occupational therapy for children ages infant to teens. We offer home and school based services.   


What is Pediatric Occupational Therapy? 

Our pediatric occupational therapists evaluate a child’s current skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.  OT’s help children perform daily activities they may find challenging by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues.

We help kids work on the following areas:

  • visual-perceptual motor skills to improve writing legibility, drawing, puzzles, and copying text.    

  • eye-hand coordination so that the child can catch a ball, hit a target, and perform construction activities.

  • strengthen core and upper bodies for better balance and posture to support gross and fine motor abilities. 

  • sensory processing so that the child can better focus, self regulate, participate socially and engage in daily living activities.
