‘Tis the season for holiday cheer and gift giving to our loved ones! Follow this occupational therapy gift guide for toy ideas to help facilitate improving your child’s skills in the different areas of OT. 

Sensorimotor: The following items help provide sensory seekers with increased inputs by promoting movement and heavy work. 

Sensory Regulation: These items are great for kids that need help with calming and regulating their bodies. 

Tactile Exploration: We love messy play! These items promote tactile (touch) exploration which improves awareness of the hands as well as sensory processing. 

Fine Motor and Visual-Motor: These items promote using the eyes and hands together, as well as increasing hand and finger strength necessary for school skills and self-care tasks. 

 Reach out to your child’s occupational therapist for more gift ideas or instruction on how to use these items! Happy holidays from your Blue Bird family! 

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2-7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy. A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
