Developmentally, children spend the first eight years of life experiencing and challenging their bodies and their environment. Their minds are alive with information received through touch, taste, vision, smell, and sound. This stage in their development is crucial. It lays the foundation with which a child gains skills, self-confidence, and mastery of his/her body and their environment. Children express happiness in themselves and their world when development occurs as expected.

San Diego Occupational Therapy’s mission is to help your child to reach developmentally, his/her highest potential.
