At ‘I Learn’ occupational therapy intervention mainly follows a ‘Sensory Integration Approach’, where processing and integrating sensory information from vision, smell, taste, hearing, touch, balance, and muscles awareness sensory systems are addressed in a fun and active way, in order to enhance development of functional skills, learning, behavior and social interaction.
Therefore the focus of occupational therapy is to build the underlying skills that allow the child to successfully participate and engage in meaningful life occupations (such as: feeding, playing, handwriting, dressing….etc). Following are these underlying skills:
• Gross motor skills and coordination
• Fine motor skills
• Visual Perception: How the brain analyze what it sees
• Visual motor skills: Reflected in handwriting, and constructional play tasks
