April is Occupational Therapy Month!

April is occupational therapy month and at RTS, we have awesome occupational therapists who provide extraordinary care and services to their patients!  Our occupational therapists are a vital part of our team and help our speech therapists and physical therapists as well as caregivers know how to best work with children who may have fine motor delays, visual perceptual difficulties, sensory processing issues, handwriting problems, etc.

For more information about our occupational therapists and possible reasons for an evaluation or treatment, please visit the occupational therapy page of our website.  Also, check back for new blog posts related to occupational therapy during the month of April.
