Girl on tire - Occupational Therapy

An occupational therapist, also known as an OT, provides evaluation and treatment for individuals with disabilities, recovering from injuries or experiencing physical and cognitive changes in order to help them participate in the various activities or “occupations” of everyday live. For children, “occupations” are activities that enable them to learn and develop life skills (e.g. school activities), be creative and or derive enjoyment (e.g. play), and thrive (e.g. self-care and care for others). An OT may help children improve their fine motor, visual motor, cognitive, sensory processing, social, and play skills.


Our Blast Off OTs provide comprehensive evaluations followed by individualized treatment plans tailored to your child’s specific needs. We provide individual therapy sessions in person at our cheerful, clean, and fully equipped Miramar area clinic or via teletherapy if in person visits aren’t possible.

“I have 14 and 12 year old sons with Autism. Blast Off has been our home for speech, OT, and PT for the last 3 years. Both of my sons have progressed so much during our time here. Meghan (speech therapist) has worked on conversation skills with my boys. She truly has helped them to have neuro-typical conversations with peers! Lauren and Jessica (OT) have worked on handwriting skills, daily living skills, and self-regulating strategies. These OT skills are so crucial to people on the Autism spectrum. Alyssa (PT) has helped my 12 year old develop is weak core and endurance level! My sons are a couple of months from graduating services at Blast Off! I totally recommend them if you are searching for a welcoming office with staff that truly cares about your children.”
