Mission Statement

To create a therapeutic environment that fosters growth and meaningful changes for children and their families through our dedication to being client-centered and family empowering.

Neurofeedback Induces Change

We see decreases in sensory processing hyperesponsiveness (parietal lobe). Children able to tolerate sensory stimuli in the environment that would normally be more noxious and...

What is Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy examines all activities of daily living skills of individuals spanning every area of their life. We identify areas of strengths as well as any barriers due to physical, mental, emotional, developmental or environmental barriers impeding function. Through task analysis, we create individualized treatment plans to assist clients in reaching optimal functioning.

Kidabilities Occupational Therapy has been providing quality therapy to children and their families since 2008. Our therapists have the training and means, to provide occupational therapy to address improving fine motor skills, motor planning, mobility, upper body strengthening, sensory integration disorders, positive behavior supports, all activities of daily living skills (dressing, toileting, etc.), visual motor/perceptual skills, oral motor therapy and feeding therapy.

Kidabilities Occupational Therapy is proud to offer Neuroptimal EEG neurofeedback therapy to our pediatric patients. This non-invasive therapy trains the electrical activity to self-regulate via auditory feedback. EEG Neurofeedback successfully treats symptoms of diagnoses such as ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities by increasing the brain’s resiliency to anxiety, depression, improving attention to task, and decreasing impulsivity in children. During the session we are able to take advantage of children’s level of alertness being in an optimal state for learning. We have developed a three part, self-regulation program. We teach children to recognize and learn tools for self-calming on a physical, emotional and cognitive level. In addition, we are able to simultaneously implement other therapeutic activities to improve fine motor development, strengthening, visual perceptual skills, executive functioning training, etc. For children with sensory integration difficulties, we are able to provide therapy and education in our sensory integration based clinic. For more information on how EEG Neurofeedback and occupational therapy can benefit your clients or loved ones, please feel free to contact us.


What is EEG neurofeedback?


An electroencephalography (EEG) records the cortical activity in the brain via a computerized system measured in units of hertz (Hz). Dysregulation and dysfunction are manifested in patterns of electrical activity. EEG neurofeedback uses a form of biofeedback to reward and train the brain to self-regulate. Feedback is typically given visually or from an auditory source. Kidabilities Occupational utilizes Neuroptimal EEG neurofeedback.

What Neuroptimal EEG Neurofeedback has to offer:

  • Holistic approach on training electrical activity for improved self-regulation
  • The system facilitates the central nervous system to detect and correct itself when it is not functioning optimally. This alleviates the possibility of operator error or the dynamic CNS shifting on one level of functioning causing compensatory, potentially problematic shifting in other areas
  • The auditory feedback system works outside the conscious awareness which is extremely beneficial to clients with severe anxiety or cognitive disabilities
  • Training occurs in real time which means addressing the brain in its current state, opposed to basing training on a one time “snapshot” provided with a QEEG

What do Kidabilities Occupational Therapists have to offer?

  • Knowledge of typical and atypical childhood development
  • Understanding of self-regulation on a physical, emotional and cognitive level and having teaching tools to affect change
  • Understanding neurophysiology behind dysregulation
  • Understanding of the Autonomic Nervous system and roles of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems
  • Understanding of executive functioning and inverse roles of the prefrontal cortex and the limbic system
  • Sensory integration disorder and treatment with compensatory techniques
  • Role of sensory integration disorders in developmental disabilities, trauma and treatment protocols
  • Understanding of the relationship between roles, occupation and mental health implications
  • Understanding the pyramid for learning. Why the central nervous system needs to be regulated before cognitive learning can occur
  • Identifying strengths and areas for growth from which to facilitate functional change
