Early Intervention Services
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.
WeeTalk’s occupational therapists help caregivers identify learning moments for a child throughout the day, as well as modifications to activities and the environment to improve a child’s ability to participate.
Our highly trained therapists utilize your child’s daily routines to target learning opportunities that occur naturally so that learning new skills will seem easy.
Our Occupational Therapists will partner with you, the caregiver, and find ways to incorporate and embed real-life strategies throughout your day.
