Occupational Therapists at Buffalo Hearing & Speech Center work with pediatrics in a variety of ways to help the development of fine motor, visual motor and sensory motor skills which is necessary for children to be successful in their play, school performance and other daily activities. Our pediatric OTs offer one on one occupational therapy sessions that are individualized to strengthen your child’s fine, visual, and sensory motor development to help them gain independence.
