Pediatric Occupational Therapy Now Offered in Manchester

April 1, 2024 in News, Therapy Services

The Regional Medical Center (RMC) Therapy Services department is expanding by now offering Pediatric Occupational Therapy services. 

Using a collaborative approach, our Occupational Therapist works closely with the family and healthcare providers to maximize each child’s access, independence and participation within their daily occupations. A child’s “occupations” include playing, taking care of self, learning and interacting with others. By focusing on fine motor, self-help and sensory organization skills, we hope to improve each child’s independence and quality of life.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy is available by provider referral. During the initial evaluation, our therapist will use a combination of standardized assessments, observations and interview to determine if a child could benefit from occupational therapy services. For more information please contact the Therapy Services department at 563-927-7322 or visit
