Occupational Therapy

WeeTalk’ s Early Intervention Occupational Therapists use activities such as play, meal, and sleep times to enhance a healthy bond that forms between the infant/child and caregivers.  They also teach families to recognize and respond to a child’s emotional and sensory regulation abilities.

Occupational Therapy Reading, PA

WeeTalk’s occupational therapists promote the role and engagement of infants and toddlers together with their families in everyday routines by addressing activities of daily living such as, exploring the environment, sleep, play, feeding, and social participation, as well as supporting the child/family how to best help your child regulate so they are ready to learn.

Our Occupational Therapists will partner with you, the caregiver, and find ways to incorporate and embed real-life strategies throughout your day.

Our highly trained Occupational Therapists utilize your child’s daily routines to target learning opportunities that occur naturally so learning new skills will seem easy.
